Three-Act Production 


Club-Benefit Performance To 
Inaugurate Active Dramatic 

The Wig- and Buckle Dramatic Club 
will start the fourth year of its existence 
with a three-act play to be presented as 
a club-benefit performance during the 
middle of November. With the success 
of "The Late Christopher Bean," pre- 
sented as last years benefit show, an 
established fact, the three-act play in 
November will now be an annual event. 
The money realized through the per- 
formances of the play, which is as yet 
unchosen, will be used in the purchase 
of additional stage technical equipment 
and in the production of the series ol 
one-act plays which the club stages 
throughout the year. 

Dr. George Struble, who not only gave 
of his time and energy, but also, as we 
happen to know, helped the club through 
several financial crises last year, will 
again act as the W. and B. faculty ad- 
viser and coach. The various campus 
successes which have been coached by 
Dr. Struble in past years are, in them- 
selves, tribute to his ability. 

The Executive Committee, newly elect- 
ed last June, who will decide member- 
ship advancement and direct the club 
policies, is composed of: Richard Baus, 
Louise Stoner, Dorothy Kreamer, Ed- 
ward Schmidt. The '36-'37 officers, who 
are also automatically members of the 
Executive Committee, are: President. 
Harold Phillips; Vice-President, Ken- 
neth Eastland; Secretary, Maxine Ear- 
ley; Treasurer, Allen Rutherford. 

AH students who are interested in any 
phase of dramatics are invited to apply 
for membership in the club. For, in the 
one-act plays presented throughout the 
J'ear, production, including direction, is 
t; iken over entirely by the students them- 
selves. Thus, a member may gain ex- 
perience in lighting, stagecraft, make- 
ll P» and other angles of stagecraft. 

This year it has been made especially 
^triple for a student to become a mem-

Debater's Organize 

The Debating Association of Leb- 
anon Valley College has been or- 
ganized for the current year. During 
the absence of Dr. E. H. Stevenson, 
the coaching duties of both the men's 
and women's debating groups will be 
performed by Professor M. L. Stokes. 
All students interested in the men's 
debating teams should consult team 
managers Robert Kell and Dean Gas- 
teiger. Girl debaters should contact 
Grace Naugle or Margaret Hol- 
brook. Freshmen and other students 
interested in this type of activity are 
urged to signify their intentions at 

Many New Students 
Matriculate at L. V. 


Dr. A. H. M. Stonecipher 
Is Named College Dean 

Committee on Educational 
Policies Creates New Office 
At L. V. 

Dr. A. H. M. Stonecipher, former 
Assistant to the President, is this year 
serving Lebanon Valley College in the 
newly-created office of Dean. 

Feeling the need for a Dean, an officer 
who is customarily in American colleges 
the president's chief assistant and ad- 
viser, the Committee on Educational 
Policies recommended to the faculty 
that this office be created. The faculty 
approved, and a recommendation was 
made to the Board of Trustees. The of- 
fice having been accordingly created, the 
president recommended Dr. Stonecipher, 
who was approved by the Board. 

As Dean in a liberal arts college, Dr. 
Stonecipher has two general functions, 
Scholastic Dean and Dean of Men. 

In the first capacity, he has general 
oversight of the curriculum and serves 
as adviser to students in problems relat- 
ing to their studies, although depart- 
mental advisers to majors continue as in 
the past- The Dean's office serves as a 
clearing-house for problems arising from 
the work of the college. The dean will 
seek to interview students who are not 
making proper progress. 

Dr. Stonecipher serves in the second 
capacity as adviser to the men in rela- 
tion to their social contacts. He also 
has charge of general disciplinary pro- 

In an interview Dr. Stonecipher said, 
"I want the students to feel free to 
consult with me in regard to any pro- 
blems or difficulties in which I may be 
able to render assistance." 

Regular office hours will be observed 
by the Dean from 11:15 A. M. to 12:15 
P. M. Students can also secure inter- 
views at other times by appointment- 

Home State Heads List With 
New Jersey and New York 
Second and Third. 

With the beginning of another school 
year a new group of people have been 
added to the already long list of those 
who have been students at Lebanon 

Seven states are represented in this 
number; four north of the Mason-Dixon 
line and three south. Pennsylvania has 
the greatest representation, with 124 en- 
rolled; New Jersey is second, with six; 
New York ranks third, contributing 
four; West Virginia sends two; and 
Maryland, Virginia, and Michigan tit 
with one apiece. 

Of the 139 registered to date, 70 have 
been accommodated in the dormitories 
and 69 are day-students, which makes 
the proportion about fifty-fifty. 
The following comprise the new group: 
Mary Elizabeth Albert, Lebanon, Pa.; 
Robert Raymond Artz, Lebanon, Pa.; 
Dean Moyer Aungst, St. Albans, New 
York; A. Kent Baker, Duncannon, Pa.; 
George Rees Barnhart, Lebanon, Pa.;

Smeltzer Senior President 

In the Senior Class Elections on 
Tuesday, September 29, the female 
element made either its presence or 
absence manifest by capturing three 
of the most to be desired positions. 
However George Smeltzer did come 
through to the extent of being elect- 
ed President. 

With reference to the afore-men- 
tioned offices be it hereby known 
that: Ruth Buck was elected Vice- 
President; Martha Faust, Secre- 
tary; and Grace Naugle, Treasurer

Day Students Organize 

To Control Conduct 

The day students of Lebanon Valley 
College this year have organized their 
group and elected a Day Student Coun- 
cil to regulate the conduct of male day 
students and legislate accordingly. The 
organization was established primarily 
to create a better atmosphere in regard 
to the conduct of day students in the 
quarters provided by the college. In the 
future the council hopes to improve con-

Ninth Freshman Week In Review 

Lebanon Valley College entered upon 
another auspicious year of its eventful 
history on Wednesday, September 1(>, 
when it opened its doors to the incom- 
ing class of '40. On that day nearly 150 
students of freshman standing enrolled 
in the Conservatory of Music and the 
Academic departments of the college. 

As in previous years, the new class 
was invited to participate in a series of 
activities extending to the official open- 
ing on Monday, September 21, and 
known as Freshman Week. The eager 
frosh joined energetically in these five 

days' introduction to college life by lend- 
ing themselves enthusiastically to the en- 
tire program. A climax was reached 
Friday night with the Y. M. C. A. ant) 
V. \Y. C. A. sponsored hike and camp- 

Saturday night witnessed a gala re- 
ception to the novitiate academicians, 
also arranged by the Y. M. and Y. W. 
C. A. Entertainment in the way oi 
games and dancing served to break down 
barriers of formality and restraint.

Improvements Noted 
At Lebanon Valley 


Walk To Rear of Dorm To 
Be Finished Next Week 
When Stone Arrives 

Just to show that Alma Mater is keep, 
ing up with the best of them, L. V. C. 
has improved materially during the sum 
mer. Of course, you've noticed said im- 
provements, but this article is intended 
for Freshmen, and — just in case. 

The cost of these improvement? 
amounted to more than $15,000, accord- 
ing to persons close to the administra- 
tion, of which the greater part, natural- 
ly was spent in re-wiring, re-plastering, 
re-flooring, and re-painting the men's 

The other repairs were chiefly those in 
the Administration building, which con- 
sisted of pointing the bricks outside of 
Philo Hall. During this operation work- 
men found fifteen packages of cigarettes 
in the wall. They were smoked by the 
campus watchman to whom, says Cur- 
win Dellinger, a major Philo flunkey, he 
intends to send a bill. 

In North Hall the defective ceiling in 
the parlor was renewed, and some other 
plastering done, after which the place 
was cleaned. Some carpenters then im- 
mediately came and installed new clos- 
ets, thus causing the cleaning depart- 
ment to run a temperature. When they 
had cleaned the place a second time, 
some weather-strippers came and fixed, 
all the windows, causing the cleaning 
department to give up in disgust. 

Resides this, the walk behind the men's 
dorm will be finished as soon as stone 
arrives. It is expected that the walk 
will be in use before the end of the 

Lebanon Valley Bests 
Kutztown Grid Eleven 


Second Half Tallies Win For 
Flying Dutchmen; Fail 
To Impress in Opener 

Lebanon Valley's gridmen opened 
their 1936 season by registering an un- 
impressive win over Kutztown State 
Teachers by a 19-6 score on the home 
field last Saturday. 

Kutztown dominated the play through- 
out the first half and left the field on the 
long end of a 6-0 count at intermission, 
but the Flying Dutchmen presented a 
more spirited attack during the second 
half and rallied to score three touch- 
downs and a win by the same final 
figures that marked the Blue and 
White's victory last year in the L. V. C- 
Kutztown opener. 

The L. V. C. grid machine manufac- 
tured ten first downs to nine for the 
Teachers, but neither team showed any 
ability to maintain a sustained scoring 
drive, and each of the four touchdowns 
registered was indirectly due to a break 
of the game — either an inopportune fum- 
ble or a poor punt. 

In the opening half Lebanon Valley 
seemed to have touchdown drives in 
the making on two occasions, but each 
time a fumble recovered by an alert 
Teacher defender put an abrupt halt to 
the drive. 

The Kutztown six-pointer resulted 
from a 45-yard advance following the 
recovery of an L. V. C. fumble by 
Stoudt, K-town quarterback. The in- 
vading eleven reeled off four first downs 
n their touchdown drive, with De Mat- 
teo, diminutive speed-merchant, and 
Heffner, burly, hard-running halfback, 
carrying the brunt of the attack. The 
Teachers were stopped for two plays 
after gaining a first down on the L. V. 
C. five-yard line, but on the third play 
a triple reverse caught the Blue and 
White defenders off-guard and Musso, 
Kutztown, left end, lugged the leather 
into the end-zone after an eight-yard 

Captain Stoudt, visiting quarterback, 
failed in a drop-kick attempt to convert 
the extra point. 

Lebanon Valley's first touchdown was 
also the result of a fumble. Ed Kress re- 
covered a fumble by Forte on the L.V.C. 
20-yard line, and the Flying Dutchmen

Homer Donmoyer Defends 
Title In Tennis Jousts 

Drawings were made last night to de- 
termine the pairings for the second an- 
nual autumn tennis tournament for men. 
A field of about twenty exponents of the 
net game comprises the entry list, which 
ncludes Homer Donmoyer, defending 
champion, who is an overwhelming fav- 
orite to retain his crown. 

The field seems to be fairly well bal- 
anced, and some exciting matches are 
anticipated by the followers of the 
tourney. Early round matches should be 
completed this week so that the semi- 
final and final rounds may be contested 
before the end of the following week.

The concensus of opinion in the upper classes at Lebanon Valley is that the 
Freshmen this fall are quite above the ordinary run of first year students when it 
comes to appearance, manners, and absence of "cockiness." In other words, they 
seem to be a "nice crowd of kids." 

The Men's Senate, which exercises supervision over first year males, does not 
expect much trouble with the verdant ones. Nevertheless, the Senate last spring 
decided to reinstate some of the rules which were abolished a year ago. These cus- 
toms, which, in themselves, are quite harmless enough can do a great deal of good 
if interpreted properly. Silly restrictions are just as unpopular as they were a 
year ago. 

These regulations, the Senate believes, will speed up all-around acquaintances 
with the new students. The extreme democratic move which was taken a year ago 
has been somewhat modified, but if these modifications do not fulfill the purpose 
for which they were intended, they will no doubt be abolished. 

The governing bodies are, as yet, in the trial and error stage and are trying to 
map out a program which will accomplish the best for the greatest number of 

The Senate is following a program somewhat similar to the one President 
Roosevelt is endorsing. The President explained himself in a speech last spring, 
"... if we try something, and that something is not successful, we shall try some- 
thing else; and if that something is successful and continues to be successful, we 
shall keep on doing that something." 

We have a faint suspicion that this something else will be successful if the 
whole school puts it across. 

Mrs. Green attended the Fernch school 
at Middleburg, Connecticut. Then she 
and her daughter motored to Quebec 
and to Montreal. 

At the close of summer school Pro- 
fessor Gingrich and his family then mot- 
ored to Yellowstone National Park, vis- 
ited San Francisco, and returned East 
via Dallas Exposition. 

Dr. Lietzau toured the West by motor. 
She visited Colorado Springs and Estes 
Park, various canyons, and Yellowstone 
National Park. 

Miss Henderson attended a hockey 
camp in the Poconos- The Ail-Ameri- 
can Hockey team stayed at the same 

Following a tour of the West Miss 
Wood spent much time in Michigan 
around the Great Lakes District. 

Dr. Butterwick had charge of the re- 
ligious services at the Mount Gretna 
Bible Conference. 

During the summer months, Professor 
Crawford studied under the master's in 
New York City. 

Dr. and Mrs. Bender toured the New 
England States- Dr. Bender visited 
many important mineral deposits in New 
York and New England. He brought 
back one-half ton of valuable mineral 
Professor Derickson spent much time 
interviewing prospective students. He 
attended sessions of the Pennsylvania 
Academy of Science at Somerset. 

Some of our faculty members were 
engaged in rather homely occupations- 
Dr. Light worked on his farm all sum- 
mer; Dr. Bailey built a fence around 
his yard ; Dr. Struble taught in summer 
school, played tennis, and hoed beans. 

Professor Shenk interviewed prospec- 
tive students, and later attended the Na- 
tional Alumni Association Meeting at 
Penn State. 

At the completion of his duties in 
summer school, Dr. Stonecipher and his 
family motored to Tennessee to visit re- 
latives. They stopped at numerous points 
of interest en route. 

Dr. Reynolds taught at summer 
school. In the latter part of the summer 
he visited relatives in Illinois. On the 
way he stopped at the Great Lakes Ex- 
position at Cleveland. 

Vacation Antics 


Favorite Professors 

Now that we're all back and settled 
once again, we naturally begin to won- 
der how our professors occupied them- 
selves during the summer months. So 
here's our faculty's diary: 

President Lynch had a very busy 
"vacation". The week following com- 
mencement found him and Mrs. Lynch 
touring Canada and all of the New Eng- 
land states. He met and addressed the 
New England alumni at Stores, Con- 
necticut- A second trip was taken dur- 
ing the week of July 25. He addressed 
the National Youth Congress of the 
Church of the United Brethren in 
Christ at Lakeside, Ohio, on the theme : 
"Is Youth Aware of Social Needs?" 
On their return trip the President and 
Mrs. Lynch visited the Great Lakes Ex- 
position in Cleveland. 
Dr. Lynch during the summer deliv- 
ered addresses at the Minersville High 

School, the Shamokin Rotary Club, the 
State Christian Endeavor convention at 
Hershey, the Mt. Gretna Bible Confer- 
ence, and other addresses at West Fair- 
view, Brunnerville, Wilmington, Eliza- 
bethville, Middletown, Enders, Camp 
Hill, Port Trevorton, and Fredericks- 
burg. Two family reunions were ad- 
dressed, and a pleasure trip taken over 
the Skyline route in Virginia, including 
a brief visit to our Nation's Capital. 

Dr. Wallace studied at the Historical 
Society in Philadelphia, and then visited 
the Six Nations' Reserve in Canada. 

Professor Stokes spent the summer 
doing research work in Ottawa and To- 
ronto at the Parliamentary Library and 
the Bank of Canada. 

Miss Moyer attended the Juilliard 
School of Music in New York City- 
Then she motored to Quebec, the Gaspc 
Peninsula, and through the New Eng- 
land States. 

Miss Gillespie toured Sante Fe, New 
Mexico, and the Middle West. 

After teaching in summer school Pro- 
fessor Carmean visited the Cleveland 
Exposition and inspected King's Instru- 
ment Factory. 



(Continued from page 1) 

cal examination chiefly occupied the 
freshmen's initial day on the educational 
scene. At 7 P. M., however,, the men re- 
sorted to the Y. M. C. A. rooms, and the 
co-eds to North Hall parlor, where 
"Freshmen Fellowship" provided relaxa- 
tion and conviviality. 

Thursday: Repairing to the chapel at 

9 A. M. next morn, the frosh gave ear 
to an address of welcome by President 
Lynch, and another by Dean Stoneci 
pher on the theme "Campus Citizen 
slip." Immediately following, Dr. Rey- 
nolds administered a psychological test 
to determine the cerebral potentialities 
of the yearlings. 

Friday and Saturday: Librarian Hel- 
en E. Meyers instructed the newcomers 
in bibliothecal procedure from 2 to 4 P. 
M. on Thursday and Friday, while Dr 
L. G. Bailey presented lectures on "How 
to Study" on both Friday and Saturday. 

Testa: Placement tests were painless- 
ly incorporated into the half week of 
campus- sampling. The foreign language? 
test was given on Thursday afternoon 
from 2 to 1 o'clock, while the class of 
'K)'s mathematical capabilities were in- 
vestigated on Saturday morning from 

10 to 12. 

Sunday. Devout freshmen attended 
the local churches of their respective 
faiths on Sabbath morning, but in the 
evening the College Church attracted to 
its portals the majority of students, 
when Dr. William A, Wilt delivered a 
timely discourse, which served as a con- 
clusion to a week of orientation and fa- 
miliarization then complete socially, aca- 
demically, and religiously. 

"Y" Cabinet Meets 
in First Session 

Definite Program For Year 
Discussed By Members 

It Isn't D 


From our private office in th* * 

*^ steaty, 

shovel at Mallard's stone quarry 
ive commence what we fondly no } 
the first of a series of blasts on ^ ' S 

The first meeting of the YMCA Cab- 
inet for the present school year was held 
in the "Y" Room of the Men's Dormi- 
tory last Wednesday night- According 
to the program and plans discussed, the 
YMCA is facing an active year in the 
Christian and social life on the campus 
of Lebanon Valley. 

With the entire cabinet and two of the 
faculty advisers present much was ac- 
complished in formulating a definite 
program. Some of the highlights of the 
ensuing year which will be sponsored 
by the YMCA alone, or jointly with the 
YWCA, will be the Hallowe'en Party, 
Dad's Week-End, and the big Christ- 
mas Week Program. 

The Cabinet has set aside a portion 
of its budget to refurnish and repair the 
"Y" rooms. Both the reading and game 
room are in need of various alterations 
and repairs, much of which will be 
done this first semester. 

The YMCA wants all members of that 
organization to use the "Y" room, to 
attend the Sunday Vesper Services and 
to cooperate with the members of the 
Cabinet in keeping the property of the 
"Y" in a respectable condition. 

Freshman Hike 

Ends in Quarry 

In other years the Y. M. C. A. and 
Y. W. C. A. hike for Freshmen was 
scheduled for 5 -.30, but this year it was 
hoped that the students could enjoy the 
sunset by leaving an hour earlier. But 
true to tradition, the majority did not 
arrive until well after the appointed 
hour. Due to clouds, however, the set- 
ting sun showed little interest in the 
hikers — probably knowing that hiking 
students prefer moonlight. 

Led by the presidents of the two Y 
organizations, and chaperoned by Pres. 
and Mrs. C A. Lynch, Dr. and Mrs. A. 
H. M. Stonecipher, and Dr. and Mrs. 
O. E. Reynolds, the group of approxi- 
mately 150 proceeded to the quarry 
southwest of town. It was then neces- 
sary to go single file through a small 
canyon to a natural amphitheater where 
several upperclassmen had started to 
build a fire. 

While the fellows gathered firewood 
and forked sticks for toasting "doggies", 
the girls and chapeVones sat on the hill- 
side recalling fires they, too, had built 
on Girl Scout hikes. In a very short 
time everything was ready, a breadline 
was formed, and the fire was surround- 
ed by the hungry horde. 

When the girls would not, and the 
fellows could not eat any more, Curvin 
Thompson, as master of ceremonies, in- 
troduced Dr. Lynch who tactfully re- 
marked that a speech at this time would 
not be greatly appreciated. Dr. Stone- 
cipher, who was the next speaker, opined 
that two speeches would be even less 
welcome, and Dr. Reynolds, refusing to 
make the third speech, remarked, how- 
ever, that the attendance at this hike of 
the Ninth Annual Freshman Week was 
greater than at any preceding hike. Louis 
Straub, president of the Y. M. C. A., 
recited a humorous poem of his own 
composition of the long distant days 
when he was a "poor frosh". Martha 
Faust, president of the Y. W. C. A., as 
the last speaker, said she hoped that for 
the Freshmen the rest of their stay at 
Lebanon Valley would be as happy as 
Freshman Week had been. 

Because no games had been planned, 
Elnora Reeder consented to lead some 
group singing. After a number of col- 
lege songs and old favorites had been 
sung, the group started homeward, coin 
ing by way of a meadow and "Lover's 

tically anything at all. DorRt let^"

The rest are Kalos- Peculiarity in D« n "

blinds in the Main Office, the boys want 
ditto on the blinds, rugs on the floor, 
easy chairs, etc. O. K-, and how about 
a couple of incense burners and a ^ 
flagons of "Nuit de Noel"? There wdl

Opening Captain 

"Pete" Fridinger, lightweight 
fullback of the Blue and White 
gridiron aggregation, who cap- 
tained the eleven in their opening 
encounter against Kutztown's 
Teachers. Fridinger's inspired 
blocking on the offense and his 
sturdy tackling in backing up the 
line of scrimmage defensively 
make him an important cog in 
Jerry Frock's grid machine. 


State College gave full honors to Prof. 
Mason Long, son of Hev. and Mrs. D. 
K. Long, of College Avenue, by promot- 
ing him from the rank of associate pro- 
fessor to a full professorship. Prof. 
Long is a graduate of Lebanon Valley 
College, class of '16. After he graduated 
here he was an instructor at Mercers- 
burg Academy. At Penn State he teach- 
es English literature. He is the author 
of several books, including Poetry and 
Itx Forms and a New Voile ge Grammar. 

Messerschmidt Again 
Heads Den Deutschen 

Der Deutsche Verein held its first 
meeting on September 28 at 1 o'clock in 
rpom 17 of the administration building. 
Dr. Lietzau took charge of the election 
of officers with the result that Edgar 
Messerschmidt was made President for 
the third consecutive term, Calvin Spit- 
ler was elected Vice-President and Sylva 
Harclerode was chosen for secretary- 

New business was discussed- It was 
decided that the dues for this year 
should be one dollar, payable in install- 
ments at any time convenient to the 
members. Plans were made to produce 
at least one German play. Everyone 
was then invited to contribute program 
suggestions, such as articles pertaining 
to Germany and speakers who might be 
available to enhance the interest in all 
things German. 

The club wishes to extend the invita- 
tion of membership to anyone on campus 
who has an interest in the cultural 
achievements of the Lebanon Valleycr 
I) cutschtum.

bulletin board in the Library and from 
any of the Executive Committee. The 
filling out of this blank and its subse- 
quent acceptance by the Executive Com- 
mittee automatically makes one a Cub 
Member. Although the club is now one 
of the largest extra-curricular organiza- 
tions on the campus, fresh talent is not 
only welcomed, but needed. All you 
would-be Thespians are, consequently, 
exhorted to come out and join.

Clionian Literary Society last week- 
elected two girls to important, offices 
which, up to the time, had been vacant. 
Helen Bartlet! was chosen treasurer of 
the society for the year, and Gayle 
Mountz was elected anniversary presi- 
dent. Miss Mount/, is now preparing her 
committees to make all the arrangements 
for the dance, and actual plans will be 
made as soon as the society has given its 
schedule of programs for the freshmen.

on the executive staff of the State De- 
partment of Public Instruction, spoke 
interestingly on a subject appropriate to 
the occasion- He addressed his audience 
as a most dynamic and potential group 
of people, and said that as such the 
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania needs 
their talents. He went on to say that the 
liberal arts student of today, through 
higher requirements, is more than ever 
a selected individual, and he admonished 
these people to use their possibilities by 
maintaining their individualities and by 
successfully putting themselves across to 
the world- To illustrate this point Dr. 
Driver described the dramatic last few 
seconds of a football game which so 
fascinated the audience that at the close 
of the address Dr. Lynch requested, on 
behalf of everybody, Dr. Driver to 
actually finish the game. To everybody's 
relief, the home team did put the bail 

Dr. W. A. Wilt, pastor of the colleg 
church, led the devotions at the open 
ing of the exercises. Prof. R. Porter 
Campbell then played an organ solo, 
"Cantabile" from Second Symphony by 
Vienne. Following the selection Dr 
Lynch introduced Dr. Driver after whose 
address a brief intermission ensued 

The second half of the program was 
in charge of the Conservatory of Music. 
Nella Miller, professor of piano, after a 
year's leave of absence returned to us 
again and opened the program with two 
fine selections executed in her own ini- 
mitable fashion, "Prelude in G Minor" by 
Rachmaninoff and Liszt's "Hungarian 
Rhapsody Number 12." She graciously 
responded to her applause by playing 
a delightful little encore- Harold Malsh, 
professor of violin, then played "Ro 
mance," by Wieniawski ; "Gypsy Sere- 
nade," by Valdez; and "Hyr e Kari," 
a vigorous and intricately arranged se 
lection by Huboy. 

Alexander Crawford, professor of 
voice, sang "The Two Grenadiers" by 
Schumann ; "For You Alone" by Geehl ; 
he also replied to his applause with a 
winsome ditty about a little black mare. 
Following these selections Prof. Camp- 
bell played the postlude. Immediately 
after the completion of these exercises 
the initial classes of this seventieth seas- 
on for Lebanon Valley College, began 
at eleven o'clock. 

During the course of the program 
Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, president of the 
college, welcomed the students new and 
old and made announcements of vital 
interest not only to the collegians, but 
to outsiders as well. Dr. A. H. M. 
Stonecipher has been made scholastic 
dean of the college, and Dr. Amos Black 
of Cornell University will be associate 
professor of mathematics. Dr. and Mrs 
E. H. Stevenson will not be able to re- 
turn to the college until some time in 
October because Dr. Stevenson is con- 
fined to a London hospital with illness- 
Mrs. Stevenson's classes in French Lit- 
erature will be handled in the interim 
by Dr. Matthews of John Hopkins Uni- 
versity, and Dr. H. H. Shenk and Dr. 
M. L. Stokes will conduct Dr. Steven- 
son's classes. 

Dr. Lynch also described the extensive 
repair work and remodelling that was 
done during the summer on the Men's 
dormitory, making it over into a habita- 
tion that is actually habitable. Doyle 
Sumner, a native of West Africa and the 
son of Alfred C. T. Sumner, a graduate 
of the class of 1902, was welcomed to 
the college and formally introduced. 

Ye Lusty Frosh 
Smear Ye Sophs 

( With apologies to Longfellow) 

Should you ask me whence these stories': 
Whence these legends and traditions, 
I should tell you how the Freshman 
Met and beat the Sophomore class 
On the night the first and twenty 
Of the month now called September 
In the battle of the Banners 
With the numbers of each class 
And thereby hangs a tale. 




On the mountains of the valley, 
On the billboards and the gas pumps 
Fell the night the first and twenty, 
Fell and never broke a finger, 
Never broke a single finger, 
Never let a single squawk. 
In the dorm the Sophs were sneaking 
Here and there with stealthy tread 
Swiping dinks and ties from Freshmen — 
Dumping beds and knotting bed-sheets. 
Charging paint unto the Freshmen, 
Running yon and running hither, 
Running yon the Sophomore class. 
In the moors and in the highlands 
In the quarries and back-alleys 
Lurked the mighty hoard of Freshmen, 
Lurked and lurked and plotted plots, 
Charging flannel to the Sophomore, 
Charging brushes to the Sophs. 
Time was passing, time was passing, 
Time is now considered past. 
On the campus marched the Sophomores 
With their banners and their rope 
Up they flung their ropes and banners, 
Up and round and here and there. 
In the girls' dorm sneaked a Frosh, 
In the girls' dorm sneaked a Sophomore, 
But both packages of banners 
Neither saw the other sneaking- 
Each for ordinary purpose 
Scared and frightened was to stiffness — 
Vertical the hair of each. 
So they sneaked off quickly, quickly, 
From the house of giggling women, 
And the ladies, ah God bless them, 
Hung the banners from their windows 
Fought to tear the other's down. 
Some dumped the drawers of other's bu- 

Out upon the snow-white sheet, 
Some cat-fought, crying in the hall-ways 
And all were active, yes, forsooth. 
Meanwhile the mighty Hiadoin 
Led his swarthy Freshman horde 
Round about the town's environs 
Through the back-yards and the alleys. 
'Stay ye here, ye verdant Freshman," 
Spake the mighty Hiadoin 
Known to some as Johnnie Flognoff 
Heap big Chieftain Johnny Gongloff 
Of the tribe called Junior Class. 
'Stay ye here," spake Hiadoin, 
"I wander hence, and I will see 
If the Sophs have hung their banners 
So that ye may tear them down. 
Tear them down, me num'rous hearties. 
And put your own about the place — 
Paint the town red, 
Get the Sophomores !" 
This is what the Chieftain said. 


In the house of giggling women 
AD was topsy-turvy strewn 
From her window spake a Sophomore 
To the gentry on the ground. 
"Go and get a pole of cedar — 


"Our Motto is to Please" 
A Trial Will Convince You 
9 E. Main St., ANNVILLE, PA. 

Some one's clothes-prop, that will do 
So that I can reach yon banners 
Hung above the upper window, 
Hung there by the Freshmen squaws. 
Brought her by the sneaking Freshman 
Make haste, for I am cold in sooth." 
Forth then wander hence two Sopho- 

Two Sophomore braves do wander forth. 
Seeking for a cedar clothes-prop 
Seeking in the alleys darkened 
For a clothes-prop made of cedar. 
Alas, there lurk in anxious ambush 
All the band of Freshman braves 
Forth they leap with shout and clamor 
Yelling bloody murder to the Sophs ! 
The Sophs are startled, one doth turn 
And advance from whence he came. 
Away he runs to warn his fellows, 
Away he flees and makes the grade. 
The other runs into the Freshman — 
Who turn to seize and tie, the brutes 
But look, he flees with sudden swiftness 
Followed by the yelling throng. 
Runs he back toward the college, 
Moving swiftly o'er the campus, 
Quickly o'er the verdant greensward 
Running through the court of tennis 
Where he runs into the netting — 
Where he falters, turns to stumble — 
Where the horde advance upon him — 
Pounding, fighting, yelling, cursing, 
Seizing him with angry pleasure — 
Stifling his apparent cries. 
Bind they him with ropes and sinews- 
Bear him off into the bushes 
And leave a man to guard the wretch. 
But up he springs and casts the sinews 
Off and in the swishing bushes. 
Springing swift away. 


Now the tribe of num'rous Freshmen 
Seize upon the campus grounds — 
Forth there mill the group of Sopho- 
mores — 

And mix it up, the nasty fighters. 
Fight they for a space of minutes 
Shout and cry with vim and vigor. 
But the Freshmen, lusty fellows 
Take the day, I mean the night. 
Take the night and beat the Sophomores. 
Hang their banners all about. 
Proclaiming each themselves the victor 
Shouting, we the Frosh have won ! 

Here ends the song of Hiadoin, 
Mighty Chieftain though he be. 
Ijet us go and cheer the tribesman. 
Will you kindly pour ths tea? 




On Tuesday night Boyd Shaffer, honor 
student and a junior, shot and appeared 
to wound badly W ilbur Leech, handsonu' 
Senior play boy who had been making a 
play for Louise Stoner, the pretty Jun- 
ior who has been Shaffer's gel-friend for 
two years or more. 

Several freshmen heroes prevented the 
calamity from becoming more serious 
than it actually was, and among these 
the most outstanding were Danny Sei- 
verling, the persistent messenger who 
went three separate times for a doctor, 
Scherfel, who received the telephone calls 
until his nervous system would no longer 
• t .nd the strain, and about five carloada 
of Frosh who went to seek news of the 
corpse at several nearby hospitals. 

Many of the Frosh became quite hys- 
terical when Miss Stoner appeared, cry- 
ing to see Leech. The famous Eastland 
crying act also caused considerable per- 

The only happy note it is possible to 
sound concerning the whole affair, in 
fact, is that it turned out to be a hoax, 
as the same business has had a habit of 
doing at about this time of year for 
about a decade at Lebanon Valley.

Clionians Entertian 
Frosh Girls On Hike 


fractional Ceremonies Fea- 
ture Annual Event; Re- 
freshments And Program 

Undaunted by the rain which had 
forced them to postpone their hike last 
ee k the Clionian hikers set a brisk 


for their freshman guests last Mon- 
day evening as the group proceeded 
toward their usual destination, Kreider's 
estate- Just above the lily pond, in a 
lovely natural setting, a fire had been 
built and a section enclosed by strings 
of brilliant, vari-colored banners. Every- 
one was served her fill of baked beans, 
andwiches, potato chips, cocoa, and 
cakes- Then a Clio pie was served — a 
crepe-paper creation from which ran 
many streamers. When pulled, these 
streamers drew forth various noise- 
makers which were much in evidence 
the remainder of the evening. President 
Grace Naugle welcomed the girls and 
introduced Hazel Heminway, who an- 
nounced the program, which was given 
before the crackling fire- Sylva Harcle- 
rode read the olive branch, an introduc- 
of most of the Clionian members. Max- 
ine Earley told the story of William Tell 
in Jewish dialect, and Louise Stoner 
and Sylva Harclerode interpreted a 
song and a dialogue-skit in their own 
inimitable way. 

After school songs were sung and 
>affy-apples distributed, the girls again 
m ked down to the bridge, where the 
traditional Clionian ceremony was pre- 
sented by candlelight- From there the 

:e rs continued home, 
^rs. Lynch, Mrs. Reynolds, Mr;. 
Srimm, Mrs. " Derickson, and Mrs. 
Stonecipher represented the faculty

Philo To Sponsor Benefit 
Movies Next Week. Frosh 
Smoker Oct. 16. 

Philo-Clio will hold their annual joint 
session tomorrow night, with refresh- 
ments with a musico-dramatic affair un- 
der the guidance of Louis Straub in 
Philo Hall and a dance in the gym. The 
orchestra will be Carl Bowers'. 

The Men's Senate has announced that 
the anti-date rule will be lifted this 
week-end for the benefit of the more 
amourous Freshmen, who are invited t« 
attend either dragging or stagging. 

Philo also apnounces that the anti- 
date rule will be lifted on October 12,

ets for the Sins of Man, which will be 
shown on the first two dates, and The 
First Baby, which will appear on the lat- 
ter two. 

At the joint session, beside several 
musical selections not named for publi- 
cation as this issue went to press, the 
Phi Lambda Sig boys will throw a skit 
featuring Rodge Saylor, Bob Tschop, 
Bob Kell, and Ken Eastland- They re- 
fused to disclose the nature of this af- 

Neither have they divulged plans for 
he smoker which they intend to hold 
for the Frosh on Friday, Oct. 16, one 
week from tomorrow. 

Concert Association 

Lists Many Members 

The Lebanon Community Concert As- 
sociation, during the past week, com- 
pleted its third annual membership drive. 
Because the campaign this year was 
more successful than the previous ones, 
the concerts this year will be of even 
higher quality than formerly. 

The Columbia Broadcasting System 
has established Community Concerts 
throughout the United States- Aside 
from being eligible to attend the three 
concerts to be held in Lebanon, members 
are entitled to the privilege of attend- 
ing concerts in York, Lancaster, Allen- 
town, and any other city where this 
serves is conducted. This gives the pat- 
rons the unique privilege of hearing 
world-famous artists for the nominal 
fee of $2.00 a season. 

Dates for the Lebanon and Lancaster 
concerts have not yet been arranged. 

I. R. C. Meets Tuesday 

The International Relations Club 
will hold its initial meeting Tuesday, 
October 13, at 8:00 P. M. Charles 
Kinney and William Clark, both 
members of last year's debating 
teams, will discuss the Spanish Civil 
War- Elizabeth Bender will give the 
details of current events in foreign 
capitals. All persons interested in de- 
bating, history, politics, and world 
peace should attend the open-forum 
discussions of the club. 

Student Teachers Practice 
At Annville High School 

Fourteen members of the Senior class 
are each practice teaching three hours a 
week throughout this semester at the 
Annville High School. 'These people are 
Maxine Earley, English ; Kenneth East- 
land, English ; Martha Faust, history ; 
Lois Harbold, history ; Jean Harnish, 
history ; Arthur Heisch, civics ; Wood- 
row Himmelwright, civics ; Wilbur 
Leech, biology ; Sara Meckley, French ; 
Anna Orth, mathematics ; Ruth Phe- 
nicie, English ; Howard Reber, biology ; 
Mildred Schaffstaff, English ; Pauline 
Yeager, Latin. 

Professor Reynolds states that this 
number is considerably less than that of 
last year's class and assigns as the reas- 
on the fact that a number of students 
who would ordinarily have taken the 
course at the present time, took advant- 
age of the opportunity they had to do so 
last summer at the Hershey Demonstra- 
tion School, which is held in the M. S- 
Hershey Jr-Sr. High School at Hershey, 
near here. 

The course is also offered during the 
next semester. 

Kalo-Delphian Session 
Greets Freshmen Guests 


Dick Smith, M. C. Presents 
Variety Program. Bowers 
Leads Swing Band. 

On Saturday night, Oct. 30 Delphian 
and Kalo Literary Societies put on their 
best bibs and tuckers, turned on their 
40-watt lights, tuned their instruments, 
and set out to entertain the newcomers 
to the campus in their best possible style. 
All the merrymakers having been as- 
sembled the evening's revelries were 
begun with a short address of welcome 
by Claire Adams, Delphian's President, 
who at the close of her speech intro- 
duced the evening's master of ceremo- 
nies, none other than Kalo's poet laur- 
eate and president, "Dick" Smith who 
presented the entertainers of the even- 

Cordelia Shaeffer led the procession 
with a trip through "Music Hall" fol- 
lowed by Kalo's incomparable Fiddlers 
Three starring George Yokum, John 
Zettlemoyer, and Russell Hatz who pre- 
sent cd in their own peculiar style the 
top hit of the week "Did I Remember" 
and "Shoe Shine Boy-" Stuart Good- 
man, a campus favorite, then breezed 
through "Trees" and serenaded "Sylvia". 
He was followed by the famous piano 
team "Jim" Miller and George Yokum 
who had adopted Nelda Kope to help 
present a three piece version of "Ren 
dezvous with a Dream" and "You 
ruined the Tables on Me-" 

Delphian's inimitable Greta Heiland 
amused her audience with the tale of 
"Sockery Katiout's Kat" after which 
Delta, Lambda, and Sigma, featuring 
Anna Morrison, Nora Franklin, and 
Greta Heiland, sobbed out "You're Not 
the Kind" and "When I'm With You." 

Upon the conclusion of the program 
the piano trio valiantly entertained the

Bucknellian Bisons Batter 
L. V. C. Eleven To Win 20-0 


Tomasetti and Quick Feature Powerful Attack Which Wins 
For Mylinmen Under Arclight; Flying Dutchment Fight 
Valiantly And Please Crowd With Running Attack 

W. & B. Selects Milne Play 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen were defeated in their second start of the 
season last Friday night under the floodlights at Lewisburg. "Hooks" Mylin's 
Bucknell proved all too powerful for the cohorts of his former pupil, "Jerry" 
Frock, and the Blue and White suffered its first defeat of the season by a 20 to 

Bucknell flashed a running and passing attack that rolled up the high total 
of nineteen first downs which enabled the Lewisburgers to score touchdowns in 
each of the last three periods. 

L. V. C. fought valiantly in their only night game of the season and forced 
the Mylinmen to resort to aerial tactics in registering each of their scores- At 

the same time, the Frockmen's offense 
gained a total of seven first downs dur- 
ing the contest. 

Tomasetti and Quick, a pair of Sopho- 
mores, starred in the offensive attack of 
the victors. The long gains registered 
by these two lads were important fact- 
ors in the Bison ground attack, and the 
former was on the throwing end of a 
number of successful aerials. 

Bucknell got its first scoring chance in 
the opening minutes of the game when 
a Bucknell man recovered Kress' fum- 
ble deep in L. V. C. territory, but the 
Bisons failed to capitalize on this first 
break of the game. Four plays netted a 
loss of five yards, and the Flying Dutch- 
men regained possession of the oval. 
L. V. C. made one first down but was 
then forced to punt, Kress getting off a 
nice boot to the Bucknell 15. 

From this point the Bisons advanced 
steadily until Poloniak recovered an alien 
fumble on his own 29-yard line. L. V. C. 
then got its best sustained drive of the 
day in motion and advaced 51 yards be- 
fore a pass interception put an abrupt 
end to the attack. Kress and Tindall 
alternated the ball-carrying assignment 
in this drive, which netted four first 
downs for the Blue and White. 

(Continued on Page 3, Column 2) 

At the initial meeting of the Wig 
and Buckle Club, Harold Phillips, 
the President, presented the members 
with the new constitution, which was 
unanimously adopted. All persons 
who had filed an application with the 
secretary, Maxine Earley, were ac- 
cepted as cub members, and all per- 
sons who were deserving received 

The three-act play for the season 
was selected and plans made for its 
production. The selection was "The 
Truth About Blayds" by A. A. Milne, 
which should prove to be very well 
adapted to L. V. C. campus. The cast- 
ing will take place as soon as the 
manuscripts arrive from the pub-, 

A discussion was held as to the 
program for the year, and the meet- 
ing was adjourned. 

Kalo Minstrel Show 

To Be Produced Again 

Kappa Lambda Sigma held its first 
trials and practice Monday, Oct. 5 for 
the bigger and better Kalo Minstrels of 
1 936-37. The show this year has been 
carefully and thoroughly planned during 
the summer vacation by the Minstrels 
Committee, and their efforts have re- 
sulted in the formation of the biggest 
bit of entertainment produced on Leb- 
anon Valley's campus. 

Special music has been written for the 
show, and special musical arrangements 
have been made by members of the so- 
ciety- There will be a cast of forty peo- 
ple working to perfect the performance

Dr. Lietzau Entertains 
Der Deutsche Verein 


Club Takes Trip Through Das 
Vaterland Via The Lietzau 

Twelve conscientious students of the 
German language attended the first 
meeting of Der Deutsche Verein on 
Tuesday evening, when the thirteenth 
member, Dr. Lena Louise Lietzau, be- 
came the lucky star of the occasion. 

After the business had been dispensed 
and the singing of stirring German songs 
had filled the company with the spirit of 
das Vaterland, Doktor Lietzau addressed 
the club in German, narrating the inter- 
esting highlights of her last trip to Ger- 
many in 1935. 

Dr. Lietzau's enthusiasm manifested 
itself in her gestures as she injected a 
dramatic element employed as an aid to 
make her travelogue understood by the 
less-advanced individuals of the organi-

Tfci S EAT 

It's just before meal time, and there is a congregation of hungry folks at 
North Hall. It is a motley assortment — some tall and dark — some short (both phy- 
sically and financially) — some fair — and some uniair. Each face depicts the rav- 
ages of extreme hunger. Shirting eyes cast anticipatory glances toward the dining 
hail, The pleasant f r ag r an ce ei cooked toods wafts up from the kitchen below.' 
.Sundry assorted noses cast asiue their dignity and elevate themselves, so that the 
aroma miglu the more readily caress the smelling mechanism. The lellows are as- 
sembled in mass formation, wliiie the gins gather in little knots. (The West Hall 
bunch lias a standing monopoly on the companionway on the west side of 'ihe 

Finally the long-awaited moment arrives; — the long arm of the head waiter is 
thrust forth from the serving kitchen and the dinner bell is clanged. Everyone is 
tense — excited, 'there is a general push toward the east. Someone yells, "Faculty !" 
The crowd stops its milling and parts in the middle, as did the Hed Sea to admit 
the passage of the children of Israel. The faculty members pass through, like cap- 
tive Jesuits going through a Huron gantlet. 

But what's the hold-up? Why are all those young ladies standing there look- 
ing up the stairs? Why, simply this: they can't go into the dining hall until the 
upper class gals have done so. But listen! What's that? — Ah — at last, angel foot- 
steps on the stairs — klonip, klump, /clamp. It's a senior girl. But wait — there must 
be more — sure enough, here comes another one! It really won't be long now, but 
it's beastly hard on the arches, this standing around. 

And what's happening in the meantime? The food on the tables is losing its 
former warmth, and the flies are getting away with the choicer cuts. 

How can this be remedied? By abolishing class standing — heaven forbid! That 
is by far "too priceless a heritage to dispense with. Perhaps the upper class ladies 
who reside upstairs in North Hall could solve this unhappy situation by starting 
to dress ai couple of minutes in advance of the dinner bell.

Introducing New Faculty Members 

Thank You! 

Prof. Rutledge, in behalf of the 
boys' band, wishes to thank the Stud- 
ent body who contributed $37.01 on 
Friday morning last towards the 
band's traveling expenses. 

Dr. Matthews 

Due to prolonged vacancies in the De- 
partments of French and Mathematics, 
there are at present in our midst two 
new professors. Both are instructors of 
high calibre and long experience, and, 
although they have been here but a short 
while, they are fast making friends 
among faculty and student body alike 
through their congenial personalities and 
sincere interest in their work. It is with 
keen satisfaction that we a re able to 
present them to the readers of I, a V11? 
in a more unusual light. 

Dr. Charles Matthews, associate pro- 
fessor of French, recalls a long and col- 
orful career beginning in 1901, which has 
taken him from his native Maine as far 
as Constantinople, and back again to 
the bayous of Louisiana. Graduating from 

Amherst, which in 1901 was much on 
the same order as Lebanon V alley, he 
took his doctor's degree at Johns Hop- 
kins and then entered Princeton Univer- 
sity as an instructor in French under 
the preceptorial system inaugurated by 
Woodrow Wilson during that most glo- 
iious period of Princeton's history. Thir- 
teen years passed there until, in 1917, 
catching the martial spirit, he received 
a commission as ensign in the naval avi- 
ation corps and saw service along the 
north coast of France for the balance of 
the war. Returning to America at the 
close of his service, he collaborated on 
the official history of naval aviation for 
the rnited stales Government. In 192J 
while on his way to resume his former 
position at Princeton, he received a call 
to .Louisiana State University, which at 

thai; time was tar from being the mag- 
nificent institution for whose aggran- 
dizement and his own, the late and un- 
lamented Senator Long was to wring fa- 
bulous appropriations from the State 
Legislature. Dr. Matthews remained at 
Louisiana State for thirteen years dur- 
ing its phenomenal growth, becoming 
quite laiuiliar with conditions at that 
Lime, until the summer of 1934, when he 
resigned from there to study further in 
Lurope. Previous to Ms coining to Leb- 
anon V alley he was living in retirement 
at Washington. For the rest, hobbies he 
has none; likes Louisiana (barring Sen- 
ator Long), a good pipe, antt Ann vide 
iiospitaiity ; is unmarried but, at this 
writing, is still susceptible.

Dr. Black 

Dr. Amos Black, acting Professor of 
Mathematics, is a native of West Vir- 
ginia. He graduated from Marietta Col- 
lege in 1925 and avers that its close re- 
semblance to Lebanon Valley causes him 
to feel perfectly at home on the Ann- 
vihe campus. A portion of his post- 
graduate work was done at West Vir- 
ginia University, and he received his 
doctor's degree from Cornell in 1932. 
ne was processor 01 Mathematics for 
ii% e years at the University of West 
v irginia, and spent an additional six 
years in the same capacity at Cornell, 
crom whence he came to Lebanon Val- 
ley. Except for his decidedly non-Irish 
origin, he might well have been the same 
Kindly professor to whom Dr. Driver 
nad reference in his recent chapel ad. 
dress. Unlike his colleague, Dr. Black 
nas been a family man, preferring the 
peace of home die to a less settled ex- 
istence. However, we do find him over- 
seas in 1918 widi the American Expedi- 
tionary Force, a period which he mer- 
rily describes as a good vacation, since 
the Armistice was signed two days after 
ne landed. It is not known whether the 
Germans were apprised of his coining 
or not. He summers at the University 
of Chicago in oruer to keep abreast of 
the latest developments in the science of 
mathematics. At present he is living 
quietly in Annville with his wife and 
four-year-old daughter. Golf and swim- 
ming are among his favorite sports, and 
in addition he may also frequently be 
seen playing tennis with the intelligent- 
sia on the north court. Literature, chief- 
ly of a scientific nature, is his principal 
method of intellectual diversion. Asked 
how he liked Annville, Dr. Black replied 
that he anticipated a thoroughly enjoy- 
able stay, and to date he has not been 
disappointed in the least. It is our fer- 
vent hope that he may never be, regard- 
less of how long he is with us.

Mr. Benjamin Owen 

Mr. Owen began his musical studies 
at his home in Tennessee, and followed 
with one year's study in New York un- 
der Josef Lhevinne. For the last four 
years he has been a student at the Juil- 
liard Graduate School, being graduated 
in May this year. During his fourth 
year he taught, also, at the Graduate 
School. While at Juilliard Mr. Owen 
studied with the celebrated Russian pi- 
anist, Alexander Siloti, teacher and cou- 
sin of Rachmaninoff, and considered by 
authority as "one of the most eminent 
of Liszt's pupils." 

This past summer Mr. Owen taught 
privately in Los Angeles, California, his 
present home, and did some broadcasting 
in the same city. 

Mr. Owen seems earnest in his enthu- 
siasm for our conservatory, and says 
that so far he has found nothing in 
which to he disappointed, lie looks for- 
ward to time for extensive practice, hav- 
ing a comparatively light schedule. 

Mr. Owen's initial recital is tentative- 
ly set for early December. 

Vox Populi 

To the Editor of La Y11: Coixegienne: 

Two hundred years ago in the city of 
Calcutta, India, Surajah Dowlah, the Na- 
bob of Bengal, after- capturing that city 
imprisoned Flo' men in a room containing 
324 square feet of floor-space. One hun- 
dred forty-six were placed in this cclJ 
in the evening, next morning 23 remain- 
ed alive. The news of this horrible tra- 
gedy swept around the world and mill- 
ions were stricken aghast at such wanton 
cruelty. One hundred twenty-three men 
died in a space of about twelve hours, 
and this "Black Hole of Calcutta" be- 
came the legend of crowded places. Since 
then such conditions have never been 
equalled, because they were the machin- 
ations of a quasi-savage mind, and civi- 
lization, according to popular belief, has 
advanced considerably beyond such 
treatment of human life. Why did they 
die? To be sure, there was a minimum 
of ventilation, but the little they had 
gave them quite enough air to breathe, 
no, it was purely and simply the crowd.; 
men driven to desperation by heat and 
the appalling lack of room, desperation 
and worry soon brings madness and af- 
ter that a milling, crawling, screaming, 
killing mass of animals. 

Bather terrible, all this, but men these 
days, particularly college men, are made 
ot sterner stuff then those Britishers. To 
be very specific, college men of Lebanon 
Valley, not boarding students, but day 
students. Some rather precise dimen- 
sions and members related to the Men's 
Day Student Room have been gathered 
together, here is the ridiculous saga of 
the room the administration would con- 
cert into a "gentleman's room." 

Area of room equals 102,729.00 sq. in. 
equals 713.11 sq. ft. 

Area of objects occupying floor space 
in that room: 

1 tables equal 10,308.00 sq. in. 
21 chairs equal 5015.25 sq. in. 

2 waste receptacles equal 512.00 sq. in. 
2 tiers of lockers equal 5472.00 sq. in. 
1 jutting corner equals 248,50 sq. in. 

1 coat hanger equals 2178.00 sq. in. 

1 candy dispersing machine equals 
253.75 sq. in. 

24,077.50 sq. in. equals 1G7.20 sq. ft. 

Area of Room equals 713.11 sq. ft. 

Area of occupied space equals 167.20 
sq. ft. 

Available Area equals 545.91 sq. ft. 

Men Day Students equal 130. 

Assuming that 21 people — 21 chairs 
for 130 people create quite a scramble 
at lunch time — 21 lucky individuals are 
stated in chairs, their feet must occupy 

at least one square foot, hence 2l 

feet less space for the other 109 1. ^ Uatt 

stander-uppers. ^ 

545.91 minus 21.00 equals 524.9i 

By simple division, we have: 

524.91 divided by 109 equals 4. 8 j 

ft. per person. H 

That space is less than an ,>

The Black Hole of Calcutta n*« .

2.21 sq. tt. per person. But, a fj- 
men died in that death trap, condijj 
were identically the same as L. V ^ 
highly regulated and legislated day sl * 
dent's room; however, 02 more men dj 
before dawn broke. So. far there 
been no local fatalities, and the \^ 
day student manages to keep alive f 
day to day. How? Primarily by n0 j. ^ 

ing this room. It would be highly 
initiating to hold a father and son 
student luncheon some day, and 


that faculty committee announce, '"j^ 
is a gentleman's room — please percei 
the live lovely ash trays, etc." 

It isn't silk or satin or even tapestries 
these people want, it is merely a f3 
attitude to their problem, and they y er 
emphatically are not getting it. The ad 
ministration should know about this, how 
can they avoid it? — a professor talus 
his lunch with them— no, ignorance of 
conditions could not be the answer 
Neither is the depression. It is thought- 
lessness and a too-sure feeling that a 
student will take almost anything.^ 
not complain too vigorously, but such 
ruthlessness can not be over-looked. Did 
you ever eat lunch in a room as crowded 
as this with 25 boys dressing after a 
gym class? — perspiration, sour towels, 
flies — a gentleman's room.

Beginning with her departure from 
New York on the Hamburg and her sub- 
sequent arrival in the port city of the 
same name, Dr. Lietzau sketched her 
travels through northern and central 
Germany. Besides explaining the histor- 
ical and literary background of the 
points visited, she told of her own hu- 
morous experiences. Thus the lecture 
eminated a refreshing personal flavor. 

One of the most amusing incidents

Bucknell countered with an offense 
that continued into the second quarter 
of the game and fell short of a score 
only because of a magnificent goal-line 
stand by the Flying Dutchmen. The Blue 
and White eleven then brought the ball 
out to their own 37 before being forced 
to punt. 

Bucknell took the ball on the 30, To- 
masetti reeling off a " first down on the 
first play. A long pass, Tomasetti to Stu 
Smith, placed the oval in Lebanon Val- 
ley territory, and another overhead 
heave, this time with Tomasetti on the 
receiving end, placed the ball on the 
L V. C. 3-yard line. Smith carried the 
ball over the final stripe for a touch- 
down, with Filer converting a place- 
ment try for the extra point. 

A pass interception by Quick gave 
the Bucknellians the opportunity for 
their next score. Bucknell gained the 
ball on the L. V. C. 30 by virtue of the 
alert Bison's work, and a pair of passes, 
Smith to Jones and Jones to Quick, 
registered the touchdowns. Filer's kick 
went wide and the score stood 13 to o- 

On the kickoff following this second 
score Johnny Tindall broke away for 
the longest run of the day when he made 
his way to midfield after receiving the 
oval on his own goal line. 

Soon afterward, however, a Bucknell 
interception of one of Kress' heaves 
gave the Bisons their final scoring op- 
portunity. Quick broke loose for a 45- 
yard gain and a pass play placed the 
ball on the L. V. C. 3-yard line, from 
where Jones tallied the final score- 
Quick added the extra point from place- 
ment to bring the final score to 20-0.

will have the opportunity of witnessing 
on the evenings of November 6 and 7- 
Besides these two local performances the 
minstrels are booked to perform at sev- 
eral nearby cities, among which are 
Pottstown, Hummelstown, and Steelton. 

The Kalo minstrels are a Lebanon 
Valley tradition, which was revived last 
year after a few years of inactivity. 

John Tindall, fleet-footed quar- 
terback, returned to action in the 
nocturnal tilt at Lewisburg last 
Friday night and led the Flying 
Dutchmen in a pleasing offensive 
attack against the Bucknell Bis- 
ons. Tindall accounted for the 
longest run of the day when he 
took an opposing kickoff on his 
own goal line and returned it to 
midfield before being downed. 

The New Booki 

Several new books have been added 
to the library recently, and as usual thej 
have been carefully selected so as to 
appeal to a variety of interests. 

Among the novels are two that have 
been received with loud acclaim by lead- 
ing reviewers and critics. Gone With the 
Wind, first novel of Margaret Mitchell, 
has been praised as "one of the finest 
Civil War epics of all time." As an af- 
termath of the war, the heroine, Scarlett 
O'Hara, a selfish, willful girl of sixteen, 
suffers for the first time the pangs of 
poverty, a trial which one reared in lux 
ury such as that to which she was ac- 

customed could scarcely bear. Her ruth- 
less attempts to regain lost wealth make 
a story rich in human interest, as well 
as one that gives a realistic background 
of reconstruction days. 

Also full of dramatic incidents and 
rich in flavor is the last novel of Wini- 
fred Holtby, South Riding, A hypo- 
thetical county council in South Riding, 
a section of Yorkshire, is the center of 
this story of modern England; through 
its activities the author presents a cross- 
section of English society. The cast of 
characters is large and no single drama 
really dominates the book, but emotional 
interest is centered around Councillor 
Robert Carne, a handsome and unhappy 
gentleman farmer, and Sarah Burton, 
the new, red-headed schoolmistress, 
whose vital, advanced notions Came is 
inclined to balk. But the drama of these 
two is only part of the story. A host of 
characters, clearly defined, are utilized 
to carry out Miss Holtby's larger pur- 
pose, namely, to show English local gov- 
ernment in action, in concrete human 
results. This novel gives us a fresh view 
of the bargaining, intriguing, disturbing 
world of today, full, nevertheless, of 
courage and excitement. 

Noah Webster: Schoolmaster to Amer- 

ica, by Harry R. Warfel, brings into 
sharp relief a character of great impor- 
tance in the history of early American 
culture. The man who made "Webster" 
and "dictionary" synonymous, was morr 
than a mere writer of definitions. From 
1783 to 1848 the nation was his school 
room, where lie taught lessons on lan- 
guage, education, politics, economics, 
public health, and religion. lie was as 
versatile as Franklin, and as useful. 
Many amusing contemporary opinions «f 
Webster give life to the narrative. 

Kenneth W. Colgrove, in Militarism in 
Japan, tries to interpret for us the baf- 
fling aspects of Japan's life and thought, 
which are delaying the process of west- 
ernization. He helps us to refrain from 
measuring Japan's actions by our own 
yardstick, and to take into acoount the 
institutions peculiar to the Japanese. 

Of sociological interest are The Plight 
of the Bituminous Coal Miner, which 
describes the misfortune of the 200,000 
surplus miners in the United States; and 
Crime's Nemesis by Luke S. May, who 
tells true stories in this volume of his 
quarter-century experiences in criminol- 
ogy. There is material here for a hun* 
dred mystery stories, and exci lenient 
enough for the most avid fan.

Prince Albert's the tobacco for 
breaking in a pipe— and for 
forever after too. Being 
"crimp cut," P. A. burns 
slower— smokes cooler. 
There's a mighty sweet fla- 
vor to a pipe when you smoke Prince Albert in 
it steadily. The fact that all "bite" is taken out 
of P. A. 's choice tobacco explains why. Try smok- 
ing Prince Albert yourself. See our offer below. 


Pipefuls of fra- 
grant tobacco in 
every 2-ounce tin 
of Prince Albert 


Smoke 20 fragrant pipefuls of Prince Albert. If you don't find it the mellow- 
est, tastiest pipe tobacco you ever smoked, return the pocket tin with the 
rest of the tobacco ir. it to us at any time within a month from this date, and 
we will refund full purchase price, plus postage.

Tennis Tourney, Hockey 
Occupy Girl Athletes 

Annual Fall Net Competition 
And Pre-Season Hockey 
Practice Feature W. A. A. 

The girls have begun their hockey 
practice in preparation for a rather 
heavy schedule- With only one mem- 
ber lost through graduation, Miss Hen- 
derson has a squad of fifty girls out of 
which to build a strong team. Games 
have been scheduled with Dickinson, 
Moravian, Gettysburg, Susquehanna, 
and the Harrisburg Hockey Club. The 
Women's Athletic Association has re- 
cently become a member of the National 
Hockey Association. 

Saturday morning a team composed of 
Juniors and Freshmen will play a Se- 
nior-Sophomore team. They can't prom- 
ise you the thrills or appeal of a foot- 
ball game, but they would appreciate it 
if the student body would help make the 
hockey season successful. 

About 20 girl tennis enthusiasts have 
been paired off, and games in the annual 
fall tennis tournament for women will 
be played this week. Ernestine Jagnesak 
is a heavy favorite to successfully de- 
fend the laurels she won last season. 

Some exciting matches are expected- 
There promises to be keen competition. 
Ruth Buck is seeded second honors, 
Louise Saylor third, and Carolyn Rob- 
erts fourth place.

true that Rosie might direct the Junior

Pr. Ashley Speaks 
In Extended Chapel 


first of a Series of Chapel 
Lectures For Current Sea- 

p r . Geo. H. Ashley, Geologist of the 
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, in an 
interesting address during the Tuesday 
morning chapel period, gave a resume 
of the geological history of the Lebanon 
Valley from a period of approximately 
gOO million years ago to the present day. 
rfi,is talk was the first of a series of lec- 
tures delivered by outstanding men of 
various fields, the purpose of which is to 
give the students and faculty a glimpse 
into lines of endeavor outside the scope 
of the regular curriculum. 

Dr. Ashley who was introduced by 
Dr. Shenk, entitled his talk, "The Story 
of Lebanon Valley." It seems that this 
beautiful valley of ours is not geologi- 
cally speaking, a true valley after all, 
but a large trench. A trench 1,500 miles 
long, extending from the mouth of the 
St. Lawrence River in Canada to cen- 
tral Alabama, and 15 miles wide — at our 
share of the trench — formed by the ero- 
sion of soft rock between hard rock 
bWKght about* by the traffic of ages past.

Senate To Sponsor 
Scholastic Contest 


New Idea Sets Premium 
On Popularization or In- 

In an endeavor to maintain high stand- 
ards of scholarship among the students 
of Lebanon Valley College, the Men's 
Senate is seeking the suggestions of both 
Faculty and students as to the means of 
best attaining this ideal. A committee 
has been appointed consisting of Chair- 
man, Francis MacMullen, Dean Gas- 
teiger, Roger Saylor, and John Mar- 
barger for the purpose of investigating 
the subject and securing the opinions of 
others upon it- Briefly the plan of the 
Senate is this: By infusing a spirit of 
competition among any given set of the 
various elements upon the campus, it 
hopes to cause the members of each 
group to strive for the highest scholastic 
standing of which they are capable in 
order that their group may receive the 
highest rating in the college. For ex- 
ample, the three halls, the Men's Dormi- 
tory, and the Day Students, taken as a 
group, might be a likely combination to 
be arrayed against one another in this 
contest of brains- As an alternative the 
four societies might be pited against each 
other for the honor of attaining the 
highest group scholastic standing in the 
school. Grades would then be determined 
at stated intervals and the rating of the 
various competing organizations pub- 
lished- Prizes or other signal recognition 
might then be granted to the group 
which had most successfully weathered

Dramatic Club Selects 
Cast For November Play 

The cast for the Wig and Buckle 
Club's coming presentation of "The 
Truth About Blayds," A. A. Milne's 
three-act play, was recently announced. 
The roles of this excellent drama by the 
author of "Winnie the Pooh" will be 
taken by the following persons: a nine- 
ty-year-old poet, Oliver Blayds, by Rob- 
ert Tschop; Isabel, his youngest daugh- 
ter, by Mary Zartman ; his eldest daugh- 
ter Marion Blayds-Conway, Dorothy 
Kreamer; his son-in-law William Blayds- 
Conway, Karl Flocken; his grandchil- 
dren, Oliver Blayds-Conway and Septi- 
ma Blayds-Conway, by William Clark 
and Jean McKeag, respectively; A. L- 
Royce by Dean Aungst ; and Parsons by 
Louise Saylor. 

While it is too early to forecast that 
this production will be the paragon of 
amateur theatrical enterprises, a glance 
at the dramatis persome should be suffi- 
cient to predict that a large Lebanon 
Valley audience will be assured of an 
evening of genuine entertainment when 
the curtain rises on November 5- 

Life Work Recruits Hear 
Lietzau Talk On Germany 

Dr. L. L. Lietzau was the guest speak- 
er at the first meeting of the Life Work 
Recruits last Thursday evening. The 
program was in charge of the vice presi- 
dent, Edith Metzger- After opening 
prayer by Howard Peffley, an instru- 
mental duet was rendered by Grace 
Geyer and Dorothy Yeakel- Devotions 
were presented by Robert Clippinger. 

As her subject, Dr. Lietzau spoke on 
"Religious Conditions in Germany." In 
reviewing the policies of Der Fuehrer. 
Miss Lietzau showed how the church is 
under the influence ot Hitler's plan of a 
totalitarian state. In his plan Hitler wants 
to unite all denominations into one state 
church. The difficulties which hinder his 
policy are that the church will not 
tolerate politics, and the fact that the 
Catholic church in Germany has its seat 
of authority outside of Germany, and 
cannot be governed by local authority- 
Following Miss Lietzau's informing 
talk, a forum was conducted in which 
various phases of Germany's govern- 
ment were discussed. 

Jean Schach, accompanied by Mary 
Ann Catroneo at the piano, sang Oley 
Speak's "Let Not Your Heart Be 
Troubled-" In a short committee meet- 
ing following, it was decided to invite 
special speakers to t J ese weekly meet- 

Harrisburg Symphony 
Plans Concert Series 



Liberal Offer made to L. V. C. 
Students. First Concert 
Next Tuesday 

The 193(5-37 concert season of the 
Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra opened 
this week with a drive for subscrip- 
tions. Again this year the committee in 
charge has made a liberal offer to stu- 
dents of L. V. C. Especially in view of 
the fact that this season's soloists art" 
among the most outstanding, is this offer 

Tuesday evening, October 20, will 
bring the lovely and celebrated soprano, 
Lotte Lehmannf to the Forum. This ar- 
tist enjoys great popularity wherever 
she appears. Her name has brought out 
a larger subscription total to the Har- 
risburg society already this season than 
the announcement of last year's entire 
group of artists. Students wishing to 
hear Mine. Lehmann are urged to buy 
their tickets before this week-end to in- 
sure admission. 

The remainder of the season will bring

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen make their second home gridiron stand 
of the season ; the day dawns dark and dismal, but the rains clear away in time 
for the Blue and White's snappy running attack to gain ample footing on a 
not-too-muddy field and dash to a sparkling victory over Juniata's Indians by a 
count of 18 to o under sunny skies. 

Ed Kress bounces the pigskin to Johnny Tindall on a lateral midway in the 
second period, and the veteran quarterback scampers over the final stripe for the 
only score of the first half- 
Two partially blocked punts pave the way for touchdowns by Kress and 
Tindall in the third period, and a Gloomy Jerry Frock sends in the reserves to 

I hold the three-touchdown advantage and 
prevent the regulars from running them- 
selves to death toward the goal line with 
blocked punts. 

Juniata kicks off to start the warfare, 
and Tony Rozman meets up with a 
couple of Redskins along about the 25- 
yard line and is tossed. Kress barges off 
right tackle for four yards and promptly 
stands on his head for five more. Tony 
Rozman cracks the line for the first first 
down of the game on the L. V. C. 37. 
Tindall gets - caught in the midst of a 
mass of Blue and White backfield men 
who seem to have gotten their signals 
mixed, and the Dutchmen note a deficit 
of six yards on the play. Kress regains 
three of these yards, but when L. V. C. 
is off-sides on the play, the Dutchmen 
decide it's about time to give up before 
somebody fumbles the old pigskin. So 
Kress punts, and the ball bounds out of 
the playing field exactly 47 yards away 
from the original scrimmage line, deep 
in Juniata territory. 

Juniata takes its first try at running 
the show and nets a loss of exactly four 
yards — well, approximately, then — on 
three running plays. Tindall takes Cor- 
bin's punt at midfield and returns it ten 
yards, putting L. V. C. in alien territory 
for the first time. 

The Flying Dutchmen promptly show 
the Indians that they mean business- 
Kress hits the line for a yard gain. He's 
back to pass, but with no receivers in 
sight, he sets out on a jaunt of his own 
and gains eight yards. Tony Rozman 
first-downs on the Juniata 28-yard stripe. 
Cook somersaults Tindall for a loss of

Famous Organist To Play 
In Chapel October 26 

Alexander McCurdy, Head of the Or- 
gan Department of Curtis Institute and 
organist of the Second Presbyterian 
Church of Philadelphia, will give a re- 
cital on the recently installed four- 
manual organ at Lebanon Valley Col- 
ege, on Monday, October 26, at 8:30 

Mr. McCurdy studied with Lynnwood 
Farnam, the celebrated English organist, 
and is a concert organist of much ex- 
perience, having played at Town Hall, 
New York City, and on most of the 
large organs of the United States. "He 
is a thoroughly trained and able organ- 
ist, in command of the technical and in- 
terpretative resoures of his instrument-" 
(New York Herald-Tribune) His pro- 
gram is sure to disclose his sound 

Mr. McCurdy comes to the College 

hrough Bernard Laberge, New York, 
under whose management he is sched- 
uled for many recitals throughout the 
season in all parts of the United States. 

The admission will be fifty cents for 
adults and twenty-five cents for students. 

' L" Club Celebrates 

Indian Massacre 

In accordance with a practice inaugu- 
rated last year ; namely, that of holding 
a victory dance after each home game, 
the "L" Club of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege on the evening of Saturday, Octo- 
ber 10, sponsored just such an affair in 
the College gymnasium. The 18-0 mas- 
sacre of Juniata aborigines upon the im- 
mediate afternoon served to justify the 
characterization of the occasion. Music- 
was supplied by Carl Bowers and his 
orchestra, of late, a local favorite. The 
high spot of the evening occurred when 
Frankie Di Nuuzio performed extem- 
poraneously upon the bass viol, to the 
great delight of all present. Mr. and 
Mrs. Stokes, Mr. and Mrs. Lowell, and 
Professor Carmean acted as chapcrones-

For the past week or two a considerable amount of handshaking and general 
politics has made itself manifest. The Frosh already have some kind of an idea of 
which society they wish to join. However, pause a moment and listen. This is to 
the Frosh (a sort of father-to-son talk). 

Item 1. Although the officers of all societies have a standing agreement which 
prohibits any society from rushing Freshmen, they can not be responsible for the 
ill-starred enthusiasms of individual members. 

Item 2. Do not be annoyed by the word "literary" which somehow or other is 
mixed-up in the official names of all the societies. The societies are now the chief 
social organizations and political machines on campus. 

Item 3. A society is what you make it and not what they tell you it is. In any 
case the popularity of a society is not necessarily an indication to its worth. 

Item 4. The societies start off with a bang, then slow up perceptibly. 

Item 5. A society aims to get quantity, trusting that quality will be included. 

Item 6. A society, in order to do anything, needs money. 

Item 7. (We don't know how far any of this has spread around — but before 
any gullible Frosli swallow this "campus crap" we're going to put it in italics). 
No society or any member thereof, whatever may be his personal delusions in this 
regwd, has any control over the distribution of NYA jobs, waiter ships, or any 
other form of student aid. These matters are decided sohly by a faculty commit - 
lee, which renders 'ds decisions on the basis of individual merit and need. (Again 
we refer you to item 1). 

Item 8. Nevertheless, with all their faults, we urge you to join one, as they 
are the only organizations that are entirely controlled by students. They have 
drifted far from their original purpose, but are still worthwhile organizations. 

1 1 cm. 9. In conclusion, we wish to add that we know whereof we speak.

ill with convulsions- He was at death's 
door, and would the good doctor come 
pull him through? Yes, he would be 
glad to, and the two disappeared behind 
Philo's gorgeous, blue velvet curtain, 
which was immediatey drawn aside to 
disclose the perpetrator of the unearthly 
moans. Emmy's hubby, who answered 
to the name of Ezy (and who is really 
one of the Straub boys), lay on a bed, 
clad in night cap and flannel night-shirt, 
evidently suffering with the pangs of 
some terrible sickness- The doctor pre- 
scribed an operation, which he proposed 
lo perform immediately. The squirming 
tactics of Ezry, however, rendered the 
operation impossible ; therefore, it was 
necessary to administer a large dose of 
medicine- Ezry's spasms kept him from 
swallowing any of the stuff, which he 
deliriously kept insisting tasted like 

hair tonic. It was necessary for the doc- 
tor to inform the grieving Emmy that 
her husband was dying rapidly- The 
poor lady took the news bravely, and in- 
quired first of all whether Ezry's life in- 
surance policy had been kept up. As 
death grew nearer and nearer, the be- 
reaved one knelt beside the dying man 
and asked if he had any last requests- 
Here Ezry rallied somewhat, and labor- 
iously enumerated a list of events which 
he would like to witness before he must 
set forth toward the Great Beyond. His 
weeping wife pledged herself to have 
his desires fulfilled pronto. The afore- 
mentioned royal blue-velvet curtain was 
drawn to shut out the gruesome details 
incident to Ezry's last moments on earth, 
and when the stage was again exposed 
to view, all of the previous characters 
and setting had been whisked away, and 
the four requested events followed in 
proper sequence without announcement. 

Christine Yoder, a junior in the con- 
servatory, presented the first number, a 
group of songs, "By the Bend of the 
River," and "Homing " Her rich con- 

tralto voice did exquisite justice to the 
sentiment contained in her music. Her 
accompanist was Esther Wise, who is a 
member of the freshman class. 

Next in order followed a musical 
novelty, given by Sylva Harclerode of 
Green Blotter fame. She played a har- 
monica-piano duet- Since this particular 
type of music is usually presented by 
lanky cowpunchers wearing red bandana 
handkerchiefs, spurs, and nine-gallon 
hats, Sylva's selections held unusual 
novelty and charm. 

The Philo society was represented in 
the next event, which appeared in the 
form of a little play entitled, "If Men 
Played Cards as Women Do-" The par- 
ticipating actors were Ken Eastland, 
Roger Saylor, Robert Tschop, and Bob 
Kell. The mimicry and affected antics 
of the four male characters threw the 
audience into repeated spells of laughter. 
There was scandal galore, gossip by the 
barrel, and even a combination bridge- 
poker-pinochle game. 

The Clionians once more came to the 
front as Mary Zartman, the charming 
young blonde lady who is well known for 
her dramatic talent, delighted the group 
with two readings — one in which she im- 
personated a Pennsylvania Dutch lady 
attending the theater for the first time, 
and the other in which she characterized 
a negro mammy introducing her chil- 

Grace Naugle, Clionian president, 
then assumed charge of the session and 
ordered the guests served with refresh- 
ments. Afterwards she directed the gen- 
eral exodus toward the gym, where Karl 
Bowers and his corps of musicians were 
tuning up- The gym was appropriately 
decorated in the colors of the two so- 
cieties — gold and white for Clio, and 
blue and gold for Philo- A carnival at- 
mosphere was inaugurated by the in- 
troduction of serpentine paper and toy 
balloons into the decoration scheme. 

One of the high lights of the evening 
was a grand promenade, led by the so- 
ciety presidents amidst a labyrinth of 
tumbled-down decorations. 

The chaperones for the evening were 
Professors Carmean and Grimm and 
their wives.

"Born amid the crash of arriving 
trunks and the scratching of multitu- 
dinous pens on official blanks, was an en- 
tity known as the Class of 1940," the 
Time article reports. "Its 300,000 mem- 
bers, according to a survey made at the 
University of Illinois, are better nour- 
ished and better developed than their 
predecessors, 87% of them being in 
'good-to-excellent physical shape.' Its 
New England members, according to the 
Journal of the American Medical Asso- 
ciation, are the tallest group of human 
beings in the world, 178.03 centimeters 
(circa 5 ft. 10 in.). First official act of 
the Class of 1940 as it gathered in its 
new colleges was to hear addresses of 
welcome and counsel from its new presi- 
dents, newsworthy presidential sound- 

"At Columbia, as President Nicholas 
Murray Butler's academic procession 
made its solemn way across the Morn- 
ingside campus, a dozen striking mem- 
bers of the Brotherhood of Painters, 
Decorators and Paper Hangers, armed 
with placards shrieking that COLUM- 
ERS' UNION, wheeled impudently into 
lh.' rear of the procession, followed it 
to McMillin Academic Theatre where 
they stayed outside to picket. Mean- 
while in another corner of the campus 
the radical American Student Union 
planned to hold a mass meeting, incite 
Columbia students to strike from their 
Classes unless Dr. Butler and Dean Her- 
bert Ilawkes reinstated Junior Robert

Y. W. Plans Poverty Dance 

At the meeting of the YWCA Cab- 
inet last Monday, it was decided that 
the organization should buy a num- 
ber of magazines and newspapers to 
be kept in the "Y" room in North 
Hall for the use of the girls. They 
will also buy games which will be 
used in the semi-weekly recreation 
hour that will soon be reestablished 
on the campus. 

Sunday evening, Oct. 25, the 
Friendly Hour will be conducted in 
the form of the Annual Recognition 
Service for Freshman at which time 
YWCA pins will be given to all the 
Freshman girls. 

The girls are planning a "Poverty 
Dance" which is to be held in the 
gym on Nov. 21. We shall hear more 
of this later . 

Junior class, Ohioan Burke, was expelled 
last spring for picketing a dinner party 
at Dr. Butler's house after Columbia 
accepted an invitation to attend Nazi 
Heidelberg's Jubilee. 

"Cried orderly Nicholas Murray But- 
ler: 'The world of today ... is not hap- 
py. It is not contented. It is not pros- 
perous. ... In Seattle some 650 working- 
people, who are under contract io carry

picture lacks the hysterical appeal of the 
gridiron, and the subtle lure of the base- 
ball diamond, but, nevertheless, the spir- 
it of competition still obtains and a 
broken mind is an infinitely greater sacri- 
fice than a cracked shin. And where is 
the triple-threat star who would not 
shrink from the dangers of being ex- 
posed to Sanskrit 62? Successful cram- 
mers would be at a premium and the 
search for new material would turn 
from the mines to the libraries- In any 
event the Senate hopes that the proposal 
will receive the attention of the student 
body and that a satisfactory arrange- 
ment can be worked out from their pro- 
posal. These suggestions should be put 
in writing and dropped into the La Vic 
Contributors' Box in the Library. 

Several members of the faculty have 
been approached on the question, and all 
have been extremely impressed with the 
possibilities of the plan to develop gray 
matter. Their cooperation is earnestly 
solicited in the matter of marking. The 
Senate will then correlate these sugges- 
tions, and at some time, as yet unknown, 
the system will go into effect- At any 
rate, they ought to have the boys in the 
trenches by Christmas. A special society, 
Iota Nu, will be established for those 
who wish to view the struggle from the 
sidelines. Brain-Trusters may be pro-

his mid-section in the path of Hahn's 
fourth-down punt, and it's Lebanon 
Valley's ball on the Juniata 21, the first 
real scoring opportunity of the game- 
But the Valleyites do not capitalize. 
Friel loses a yard, and Juniata's Cap- 
tain Friend recovers Kress' fumble on 
his own 19 on the next play. Again the 
L- V. C. forward wall and the capable 
Pridinger and Kroske hold the Juniatans, 
and this time Poloniak manages to get in 
the road of an attempted boot, the ball 
§°ing to the Blue and white on the oppo- 
nents' 30. 

friel hits the line for no gain. Kress 
hlt s dead center for five yards, and Friel 
taps off left tackle for two more. Kress 
frst-downs on the 19-yard line. Kress 
and Friel are held for no gain on run- 
nin g plays and Jenkins twirls his musta- 
as he villainously intercepts Kress'

Ij^L- ' although Jenkins in the 
lme comes within an ace of shak- 

ing himself loose for a touchdown. On 
this occasion Belmer catches up to the 
Juniata star and tackles him from behind 
after a 26-yard gain, which carries to 
the L. V- C. 19. 

Juniata takes the ball on the 29 when 
Tony Rozman kicks off after intermis- 
sion, and four plays later Ed Kress is 
off on a touchdown jaunt that puts the 
game on ice for the Blue and White. An 
Indian punt is partially blocked by the 
hard-charging Valley forwards, and 
Kress snakes his way through the whole 
Huntingdon host for 45 yards and a six- 
pointer. T. Rozman misses the extra 
point, and the score is 12 to o. 

Juniata decides to have another stab 
at this business of being on the offensive 
and nets four yards on three plays af- 
ter receiving the kickoff- Ed Kress 
again snares the oval following a par- 
tially blocked punt, but this time the In- 
dians manage to haul him down on the 
fourteen-yard line. It really doesn't 
make much difference, however, for 
Johnny Tindall breaks loose on the fol- 
lowing play, tearing around left end 
for another touchdown. Main's kick 
looks good from the press box, but the 
officials say nay and the score still 
stands, 18 to zero. 

The Indians are demons for punish- 
ment, for they again elect to receive- 
This time Jonestown John Walmer plays 
the role of the villain and tears another 
hair from the already-bared heads of 
the Indians by intercepting a forward 
pass on the Juniata 33. The Scarlet and 
Gold holds this time, four L. V- C. plays 
netting about 9.9 yards, but it doesn't 
matter much at any rate. The Juniatans 
complete a couple of passes before the 
game ends, and they are handed one 
long gain on a silver platter as Pelka 
falls over his own feet and Main is 
charged with interference on a long for- 
ward- It really doesn't matter! Just the 
same, Sunny Smith, now acting captain 
since Gordon Davies is no longer in ac- 
tion, makes a big kick to a couple of 
officials. Nevertheless, it's Juniata's ball 
on the Blue and White 40-yard stripe. 
Another aerial, Geiser to Pelka, carries 
to the 27, but then the ever-smiling 
Smith proves to the officials that they 
might as well have listened to him the 
first time, 'cause he intercepts a Juniata 
overhead shot, and the last Indian men- 
ace is wiped out. 

Lebanon Valley's reserves carry on 
valiantly throughout the final period, but 
now the teams are more evenly matched, 
and neither shows any particular ad- 
vantage over the other. The game ends, 
and the final tally is 18 to a, the second 
Lebanon Valley victory of the season. 

Next Saturday the Flying Dutchmen 
journey to the lair of the Drexel Dragon 
in Philadelphia to avenge a 12-0 defeat 
suffered at the hands of the Technolo- 
gists last year.

Vox Populi 

To the editor of La Vik Cou.eoiknnk: 

The too often repeated phrase, "proph- 
et in his own country — " here can be 
applied without fear of triteness. Friday 
a week ago our band played at the Buck 
nell game at Lewisburg. They gave as 
good a performance as usual, some 
thought; a better one than usual other , 
thought. But, wKh the receipt of a clip- 
ping from the Lewisburg Saturday 
News, some scratched th ir heads and 
"reckoned" we've been blind to their 
true worth. I read this clipping: " . . 
and while we're speaking of hands, it i 
also this column's opinion that the Leb- 
anon Valley Band, which did it's stuff 
last Friday night, made a better impres- 
sion and appearance than any visiting 
college band that has paraded on the 
turf of Memorial Stadium. And this 
takes in a lot of ground, for at various 
times the Penn State, Temple, and La- 
fayette bands have played and marched 
out in East Buffalo Township." 

How's that for just reward? Not bad!

Y. W. Freshman Cabinet 

On Monday, Oct. 5, the YWCA 
Cabinet elected twelve Freshman 
girls to serve as the Freshman "Y" 
Cabinet for this year. They are : 
Louise Saylor, President ; Janet Rei- 
man, Vice Pres. ; Jean Meyer, Sec- 
retary ; Minerva Hoffman, Treas- 
urer ; and Barbara Bowman, Ruth 
Gerry, Lillian Leisey, Evelyn Miller, 
Ruth Ruppersberger, Jeanne Schock, 
Evelyn Seylar, and Lena Shaw- 

Calvin Spitler, president Of the Inter- 
national Relations Club opened the I. R. 
C. festivities for the present year on 
Tuesday night in Philo Hall with a 
meeting to decide the causes and effects 
of the Spanish Revolution. 

After the usual formalities, Betty 
Bender gave a summary of the week's 
news, and succeeded in provoking Edgar 
Messersmith, Charlie Raab, Jean Har- 
nish, and other campus pro and anta- 
gonists of Naziism into a brief skirmish 
in which no definite conclusion was 
drawn, because, before any blood was 
shed Charles Kinney and Bill Clark pro- 
ceeded with the topic which had been de- 
cided upon for the discussion of the 
evening, to wit : to decide whether or not 
the Spanish Insurrection was instigated 
or is being financed by foreign powers. In 
tin's informal debate Clark took the affir- 
mative view, while Kinney supported the 
opposite contention- Clark's arguments 
were based largely on the theory that it 
would be impossible for the Anarcho- 
Syndicalists to carry on a revolt with- 
out foreign aid, whether financial or 
otherwise. Kinney, on the other hand 
took the view that, since prominent ob- 
servers of the situation declare the af- 
fair to be an outgrowth of the acute 
economic inequalities within the nation, 
that the current fracas had its origin, at 
least, on the home field. He further 
maintained there was no evidence to 
support Clark's contention that foreign 
powers were abetting the insurgents. 

Spitler then opened the floor for the 
free-for-all discussion which is acustomary 
feature of the L R. C. meetings. Senti- 
ment, though spirited, appeared to be 

Gordon Davies, scrappy guard, 
served in the capacity of captain 
for the Flying Dutchmen when 
they opposed the Juniata Indians 
on the college field last Saturday 
afternoon. The veteran lineman 
made his presence felt through- 
out the more than thirty minutes 
in which he saw servce. After the 
Valleyites had rolled up a com- 
fortable margin, Davies was re- 
lieved, and he is expected to see 
plenty of action in Saturday's 
game against the Drexel Dragons 
at Philadelphia.

What is the Oeep? Have you seen 
him? Above is a candid camera shot of 
this rare animal caught by the intrepid 
La Vie photographer at peril of life, 
limb, and property. 

Owing to the peculiar habits of this 
rarest of all creatures, this paper will 
pay five kopeps for information leading 
to the capture and conviction of the 
Geep. Just wrap your answers in the 
family wash-board and drop into the 
contribution box in the library. 

A description of the Geep and its cu- 
rious habits follows to assist you in the 

The Geep, a sexless cross between the 
genus diploddicus and the delirium tre- 
mesis, is the mascot of the W. and B. 
stage crew. 

Owing to the fact that he has thus far 
eluded the most ingenious traps set to 
capture him, it is safe to conclude that 
the Geep is not only alive, but extremelj 
active. He is so active, in fact, that the 
photograph shown here is' the only one 
in existence, like the Geep himself. He 
emits an anti-photograph-ray at will, 
which causes photo-plates to curdle, but 
Dan, the demon cameraman, got the 
drop on him. 

According to Prof. Qwertyuiop Bytch- 

aheadoff, A.M.N.X., of the Russian Im- 
perial Conservatory of Music, the world's 
foremost authority on the diet of the 
Geep, he feeds exclusively on stage door- 
bells cooked in grease paint. It is 
thought that on very rare occasions, if 
ttuse can not be obtained, he will hun- 
g.ily consume large quantities of empty 
beer bottles, which he dresses with lamp- 
dip gravy. 



The Geep was last seen swiping bulbs 
out of the foot-lights in Engle Conser- 
vatory during a rehearsal for The Lute 
Christopher Bean, last year's colossal 
success. It is a remarkable fact that 
the Geep had been known to appear pre- 
vious to last year in anything graded 
above merely stupendous, but of late 
years lie has been seen only at plays 
which were super-stupendous. Local 
sages predict that he may show up in 
time to boost ticket sales for the Wig 
and Buckle Play, The Truth about 
Blayda, which promises to be quite a 
large riot. Watch this space for news 
of the Geep ! 


Just as this issue went to press, word 
was received that the Geep appeared last 
night during the rehearsal of the first 
act of The Truth About Blayds, A. A 
Milne's ultra-wow scheduled for Wig 
and Buckle production November 5. 
while Bop Tschopp, who plays the prin- 
cipal role, was going into his dance. Dra- 
matic critics everywhere consider this 
an infallible sign that the W. & B. is 
coming through with the McCoy. 

The Geep escaped before Dan could 
get there with his camera this time. 
However, he is lurking in the hope that 
the animal will appear again as it ha? 
been sometimes known to do during the 
production of super-ultra terrific hits.

He said that a true valley has a river 
flowing along the bottom of it and ends 
usually at the sea, the Lebanon Valley 
has no such river except at its head, 
where the St. Lawrence flows in it for 
some distance, and then again further 
south the Hudson River, but no river 
follows along its entire course — neither 
does it end in the sea, but disappears 
beneath the coastal plain deposits ol 
central Alabama. 

Six hundred million years ago this re- 
gion was a sea with a continent on the 
east and south. Accordingly sandy bed.-, 
washed in first to where the South Moun- 
tains now lie, but then a sharp geologic 
change took place and limestone was 
deposited to a depth of 10,000 feet. Af- 
ter that came a great sheet of mud 300 
feet thick on top of everything, termed 
Hudson River shale. On top of that 
more sand and then red shale and coal. 
All this makes a deposit of assorted 
muds, limestone, and coal about 25,000 
feet thick. Dr. Ashley pointed out that 
in regions near Lykens one can measure 
this co. .ting to just about the accuracy 
of these figures. Sometime in the pass 
ing of these 600 million years a great 
shrinkage of land took place and the 
surface and underlying rock were foldeu 
upon themselves, forming hills and 
ridges and moving what is now Philadel 
phia from some point out on the Atlan 
tic Ocean to the position it now occu 

In the course of his address, Dr. Ash 
ley also pointed out the importance of 
rocks as a record of life during the slow 
ejns of their formation. While no ani- 
mals older than the vertebrates could 
Lave any recorel of their existence, fos- 
;,els of early vertebrates are found im- 
bedded in rocks, and new eliscoveries of 
this sort help acquaint man with his his 
L.rical past, and at the same time indi- 
cate the large undiscoveied held that 
remains open for investigation. He 
pointed out that in the evolution of life 
progress is like the point of a plow, ever 
moving forward — a general improvement 
resulting with some forms trailing off to 
die sides and finding their habitat wher- 
ever they can make a living. 

A graduate of Cornell, Dr. Geo. II. 
Ashley, received his doctor's degree from 
Leland Stafford University. He was 
professor of biology and geology at the 
University of South Carolina, and suc- 
cessively assistant geologist of the stat. 
of Arkansas and Indiana. 

Dr. Ashley closed his informative talk 
with the sta.ement, "Mineral deposits 
aie a valuable source of wealth, popu- 
lation, and industry of this titan of 
America, Pennsylvania."

Frosh-Jrs. In Hockey 

An experienced Senior-Sophomore 
combination defeated an unorganized 
Junior-Freshmen team in the first in- 
terclass hockey game this season to the 
tune of 3-2. The girls exhibited real 
spirit and tight, but are still rather 
green- Brilliant forward line passes and 
teamwork accounted for the three goals 
the Senior-Sophomore team registered 
in the first half. Their forward line 
consisted of last year's seasoned varsity 
members, with the exception of Wanda 

The bewildered Junior-Frosh team, 
aided by snappy defense work of Ern- 
estine Jagnesak, Martha Baiey, and 
Carolyn Kohler, valiantly attempted a 
comeback in the second half, but some- 
how failed to tally. When the final 
whistle blew the score stood 3-2 in favor 
of the Senior-Sophs- Now and then the 
girls resembled golfers rather than 
hockey players for the holes in our very 
rough field have a tendency to swallow 
the ball. 

A group of 40 girl hockey enthusiasts 
are traveling to Philadelphia on October 
23 to witness the matches of the fa- 
mous foreign teams. Perhaps our girls 
can thus learn a few tricks, and really 
give our ardent male spectators some 
reason to cheer.

Frosh Girls Follow 
Trail With Delphians 


Entertainment, Favors Re-

Donning their winter woolens and 
challenging the wind which was blowing 
a merry gale the Delphian and Fresh- 
men girls started on their delayed hike. 
Delphian's colors marked a trail which 
directed them, in a round-about manner, 
to their usual site by the Quittie. They 
were accompanied by their chaperones 
Mrs. Lynch, Mrs. Richie, and Miss 

The girls, after stepping through a 
large triangle, were greeted by the presi- 
dent- She later introduced Greta Heil- 
and who had charge of the evening's en- 
tertainment. Soon the guests were gath- 
ered around the blazing fire singing- 
school songs and playing games. When 
the games were finished each girl was 
served with "goodies." The program 
was ended by a treasure hunt which 
Captain D. L. Sigma had prepared for 
the visitors. When the treasure was unearthed it consisted of favors 
for each of the girls present. 

In closing, the girls were requested to 
join hands while the traditional Delphian 
ceremony was presented. Immediately 
afterwards "Taps" was blown, and, 
while the candles drifted slowly down 
the stream, the girls continued home-

Juniors Cast For 
Annual Class Play 


Struble To Direct; Spohn As- 
sists ; Thompson, Harcle- 
rode, Sloane Get Leads 

f) ie stellar production of the year in 
the realm of the L. V. C. Stage has just 
,„tten under way. 

Xhe above refers to the play, "Alison's 
House," the Pulitzer Prize production 
f Susan Glaspell, which has been se- 
lected by the .Junior Class as the Class 
Play of 1930. This play was considered 
k« eminent critics as "the original 
American play which shall best repre- 
sent the educational value and power of 
the stage." 

The play is an absorbing story with 
tremendous human interest, having to do 
with the family of Alison Stanhope, fa- 
mous American poet, who has been dead 
for eighteen years. Her old home, rich 
in tradition and filled with memories, is 
about to be sold just at the close of the 
nineteenth century. Her sister, her 
brother, and her brother's family gather 
in the old house to take their last fare- 
well and to share in the distrilmtion of 
the precious belongings, which have beer, 
preserved by her aged sister, Agatha. 
As the old century is about to pass on. 
she whom the author symbolizes as the 
old life — Agatha — passes on with it. 
leaving a secret which she has guarded 
faithfully since Alison's death. The se- 
cret is embodied in a series of manu- 
script poems which reveal the inner life 
°f the poet, and in seeking to keep this 
from the eyes of a new and prying gen- 
eration, she nearly destroys the house it- 

Miss Glaspell has used this absorbing 
st °ry as the basis of an extraordinarily 
'"'man study. 
The play has been casted, and we find 
masters as Curvin Thompson, Syl- 
* Harclerode, and Barbara Sloane in 
tlle leading roles, supported by Cather- 
lne Mills, John Gongloff, Curwin Dell-

Philos Amuse Prospects 
Eats And Smokes Galore 

At the Philo Smoker Tuesday evening, 
held for the freshmen and new students, 
Donald Worley sang a solo, and the 
Binge Boys — the Philo quartet — gave a 
more or less musical version of A Win- 
ter's Song. Louis Straub and Curvin 
Thompson, the hairless wonder, put on a 
wrestling act, after which Chief Metoxen 
and others made speeches. The society 
then served refreshments and smokes. 

The fact that the Binge Boys appeared 
to be suffering from a state of chronic 
hilarity somewhat interfered with the ar- 
tistry of their performance, but the au- 
dience was never the less tolerant enough 
to refrain from throwing vegetables- 
According to some of- those present, in 
fact, the affair was enjoyable. 

However, the forte of the program 
was the Straub-Thompson object lesson 
in anatomy. "Beppo" Straub appeared 
in a graduate's cap and gown and greet- 
ed the fans in Sanskrit because, being 
an immigrant, he couldn't speak a word 
of English. The rise he got was exceed- 
ed only by that of "Man-mountain" 
Thompson, the hairless wonder. Close 
observers claimed rhat he looked to them 
like the world's one and only animated

Scene; Straub and Clark 
To Frame Constitution 

Those Sacred Nine who inspire rap- 
turous poesie and imaginative labors of 
all sorts hovered low over the tranquil 
college seat last Thursday night, as 
Green Blotter veterans assembled for 
their initial session of the season. The 
approach of 7:30 disclosed the shrouded 
Sisters coursing their incorporeal path 
to East Annville, and then lingering ex- 
pectantly over the Richie hearth. 

Meanwhile, within, the Barretts and

Valley letters relaxed into amiable con- 
versation preliminary to the business ;it

The most interesting phases of a sub- 
ject that receives little attention in the 
popular mind although it manifests it- 
self everywhere about us, will be pre- 
sented by Dr. Roy K. Marshall in chapel 
on the morning of November 2 in his il- 
lustrated, "address, "This Universe of 

Dr. Marshall is a lecturer and re- 
search worker of no small note. He has 
done research in the field of astronomy 
at some of the largest universities and 
observatories in the United States. He 
is a member of the astronomical so- 
cieties of four nations, and has delivered 
series of addresses in both the Adler 
Planetarium in Chicago and the Hay- 
den Planetarium, New York City. To 
visit either of these institutions is fully 
worth a trip to these cities, and when 
much of this identical material is brought 
to the Lebanon Valley College campus, 
no student can afford to miss the op- 
portunity to witness ; t 

The lecture begins with a brief view of 
some of our great instruments of today 
used to study the mysteries of the heav- 
ens. Following this, the universe from 
the sun outward is discussed ; the sun it- 
self comes first, then the planets, includ- 
ing the moon, with only a few words 
about each, to set them apart definitely 
from each other and to begin to build up 
the scale of distances. Stars come next, 
then star clusters, nebulae. Perhaps half 
the lecture is devoted to a treatment of 
the stars, clusters, and nebulae and their 
organization into that great galaxy com- 
monly known as the Milky Way. The 
last portion of the lecture is devoted to 
the other galaxies, their recession from 
us, and the implications of that recession 
(the expanding Universe). It is a large 
scale view, in which distance is meas- 
ured by light-years and time by eons- 
Small scale features such as life on Mars 
and the satellites of Saturn will not re- 
ceive much attention. The layman has 
great difficulty in organizing his concept 
of the heavens, and this lecture is chief- 
ly one to show the way in which the cos- 
mos is organized. 

Nothing in the lecture that can be il- 
lustrated will be left to the imagination.

Princeton Bans Liquor at Games 

Although the flask for more than a 
decade has been considered part of the 
equipment of many raccoon-coated foot 
ball rooters, Dr. Harold W. Dodds, 
President of Princeton University, open- 
ed a campaign to end drinking at: inter- 
collegiate football contests. 

Dr. Dodds has signed a message which 
is being sent out to all persons who have 
made reservations for the Navy-Prince- 
ton game. The message, which is being 
enclosed with tickets, closes: "Princeton 
University requests that all persons re- 
frain from the use of alcoholic liquors 
while attending athletic contests under 
its auspices." 

Princeton's president declared that 
drinking at gridiron matches had reach- 
ed proportions "which seriously menace 
the future of the sport as an intercol- 
legiate activity," and said that the re- 
quest had been made on behalf of the 
teams, which strive to maintain high 
standards of sportsmanship, "and in the 
interest of the vast majority of specta- 
tors to whom such drinking is an of- 

Presidents of Fordham, Cornell Uni-

To begin the Life Work Recruit ac- 
tivities proper for this college year, one 
leputation was sent, on Sunday, Oct. 
18, 1936, to the Gravel Hill United 
Brethren Church in Palmyra, another to 
a C. C. C. camp at Indiantown Gap. The 
latter deputation was conducted by How- 
ard Peffley, a freshman. Is God Real? 
was the title of his discourse- 

The deputation that went to Rev. 
Nye's Gravel Hill United Brethren 
Church was under the leadership of 
Daniel Shearer- Thomas Guinivan spoke 
on the theme, God — The Source of Our 
Sufficiency. He extensively defined the 
comparison between the false sources of

man" and the true source of sufficiency 
for human life as found in God alone-

Annual Tennis Tourney 
Nears Thrilling Finals 


Unseeded Umberger Defeats 
Shenk, Seeded No. 2, by 
Scores of 6-0, 7-5. 

Although King Football reigns su- 
preme in autumn on campus, for the 
few weeks past it has shared the lime- 
light with tennis. The annual fall tour- 
nament (inaugurated last fall), due 
chiefly to inclement weather, has, at the 
time of writing, only advance! to the 
quarter-finals; but the champion is ex- 
pected to be crowned before the week is 

Up to this point, the tournament has 
progressed with hut one major upset, 
That was the straight-set victory of 
"Hud" Umberger, an unseeded player, 
over "Sheen" Shenk, seeded number 2. 
by scores of fl-0, 7-5, in the second 
round. Cmberger, having improved vast- 
ly over the summer, will be a decided 
asset to the tennis team next spring, if 
he continues to play the aggressive game 
of which he is capable. 

The other seeded players have all 
come through to the quarter-finals un- 
scathed, however. Homer Donmoyer, L. 
V. C.'s tennis team captain, and seeded 
number 1 in the competition, disposed 

of his second-round opponent, Karl 
Flocken, 6-2, 6-2, after having drawn a 
bye in the first round. "Stewie" Shapiro, 
Seeded number :i, defeated Win. Brown 
in the second round, 6-0, 6-2, also hav- 
ing drawn a bye in the first round.

Fake Forward Pass Formation 
Nets Valley Longest Gain 
of Day 

Drexel's Dragon got his old Indian 
sign out of hock again last Saturday 
afternoon, bowed beseechingly before 
the altar of Old Dame Fortune, and 
was duly rewarded wi h a !)-() triumph 
over Lebanon Valley's Fliyng Dutchmen. 
The Old Dame anointed Bick'ey Ste- 
vens, a guard posted at a wing position 
for the day, her eatspaw fated to carry 
out her infernal plans for the third an- 
nual Technologist defeat of the I Hue and 
White. The masquerading linesman must 
have won the Old Dame's particular fa- 
vor by vigorous salaaming during the 
half-time intermission, for he grabbed 
the spotlight soon after play was re- 
sumed in the second half and scored the 
nine points that enabled the Dragon to 
successfully flaunt its jinx over Lebanon 
Valley gridmen. 

Neither team showed any particular 
advantage over the other on the rain- 
soaked Drexel field in Philadelphia, hut 
Stevens proved to be the best mudder 
in uniform, v onsequentiy the Dragon 
slid under the wire a touchdown and a 
half ahead of the Flying Dutchmen, who 
did not seem to be able to exeruie their 
flying plays on the slippery field. The 
speedy L. V. C. ball-carriers had diffi- 
culty holding their footing on the soggy 
turf, and never seriously threatened the 
Drexel goal-line. 

The Drexelites were confined to four 
scoring opportunities, but on two of 
these occasions Stevens employed his 
magic touch on his lucky rabbit's foot 
and succeeded in converting the chance-; 
into valuable scores. It was in the third 
period that the Swarthmore graduate 
stepped into the limelight by counting a 
touchdown and a field goal to account 
for the Dragon's margin of victory. 

The two teams had battled on prac- 
tically even terms throughout the open- 
ing half, but on the second play of the 
third stanza Stevens broke through to 
block Fd Kress' punt on the L. V. C. 
25-yard stripe. The pigskin bounded 
crazily in the sea of mud and was final- 
ly ensnared by Stevens on the 12-yard

Franklin Delano lloosevelt will, witnmit a doubt, be re-elected to Hie presi- 
dency un November third. 

\\ ail street gives the latest belting odds of 2.5 to 1 in favor of the president, 
j^rloyu's oners ouus 01 b to in lavor 01 liousevelt. 13uio»a, tne waUh magnate, of- 
ici-s a $^00,000 bet (X to I) on llooseveii's re-election. 10 date he has $21,000 
wi/rui 01 tatters. V\ e enucize liulova because he is betting on a sure thing. 

jue that as it may, lets see what a few of the men in the news have to say to 
youth, important to undergraduates and graduates alike are statements by presi- 
uentiai canuiuates on civil liberties and academic freedom. V\ unia tne month L,an- 
d<m, uoosevelt, Thomas, and Browder have handed down opinions on ireedom in 

Continuing minority group tradition, Thomas and Browder promise absolute 
treeuom for teachers, extend the freedom promised to students, and decry all at- 
tempts at restrictive legislation. 

uemocrat llooseveit stoutly affirmed the need for independent thought in edu- 
cational institutions at his own university s tercentenary. 

Surprising political moguls of all parties, Uovernor Landon blasted teachers 
oath bins in nis liulfalo speech, and, despite the warnings of local Itepubiican 
mentors, close political advisers, reiused to back down in the face of party oppo- 

John L. Lewis, President of the United Aline Workers, and chief of the Com- 
mittee lor Industrial Organization, recently addressed some of the youth of the 
nation, urging them to cast their vote for President Roosevelt, 

"iou, the youth of the Nation, can let your vote voice a belief in 
a government which is truly democratic and a man who has the good 
of a wnole country at heart, President Roosevelt." 

Evidently Mr. Lewis thoroughly believes in the importance of appealing to 
youth in the coming election. 

But let's turn the other cheek and see what Westbrook Pegler, columnist ex- 
traordinaire for Scripps-lioward papers, thinks about youth vs. the election, 

"I thinkj the most important issue in the coming election is whether 
Mr. Roosevelt or Mr. Landon shall be elected, but I don't think that 
youth is at all interested in my opinion." 

We refuse to agree with this guy Pegler, because youth is interested in the 
coining election. 

Youth has been fortunate enough to have found a leader who understands the 
real needs of our country. He earnestly believes in the principles of social justice, 
and for four years has bent every effort in a struggle to give each American a 
chance for a decent life. Already he has made advances toward stability in our 
economic system and equality of opportunity, and he is ready again to give himself 
tirelessly and faithfully to this cause. 

You have a choice to make, be it on Monday next or on November third. Your 
vote can say that you believe in a dictatorship of wealth and privilege, that you are 
willing to let all power go into the hands of a few men whose one aim is to acquire 
more power. Or your vote can "... voice a belief in a government which is truly 
democratic and a man who has the good of a whole country a1 heart. President

Despite the stormy weather, and the 
number of girls who were away from 
campus, Minerva, the Clionian patroness, 
played hostess to about fifty girls on Fri- 
day night, October 16, at the Clionian 
open house- The program opened with 
two celio selections by Dorothy Zeiters, 
followed by the gruesome tale of "The 
Lighthouse Tragedy." The characters in 
this amazing drama were : The light- 
house keeper — Jean Harnish, the light- 
house keeper's wife — Lucille May berry, 
the lighthouse keeper's little son, Willie 
— Maxine Earley, the villain — Louise 
Stoner, the doctor— Dorothy Kreamer, 
the mortician — Eleanor Lynch, the read- 
er—Betty Bender, the sound effects — 
Lois Harbold. Several amusing and in- 
teresting contests were held and prizes 
awarded to the winners. Familiar songs 
were sung, and the girls danced until re- 
freshments were served in the form of 
chocolate cake a la mode with chocolate 
sauce, coffee, nuts and candy. The deco- 
rations in the dining hall carried out 
Clio's colors, yellow and white, as did 
the attractive woven crepe-paper book 
covers which were presented to the 
freshman girls as favors. After more 
dar.cing and singing, the party broke up, 
and the girls went home. 


Last week Dr. P. A. W. Wallace at- 
tended the 100th anniversary of Vic- 
toria University which is a federated 
University of the University of Toron-

approximately 2,000. On his trip, Dr. 
Wallace visited his friend, Chief Mon- 
tour, who is descended from King Tee- 
dynocung, an Indian who led the Dela- 
1 wares in the French and Indian War.

The New Books 

Frederick Barry, assistant professor 
of the history of science in Columbia 
University discusses The Scientific Hub- 
it of Thwiiyht in such a way as to make 
it seem possible that we too could ac- 
quire such a desirable habit. Although 
he presents a definite thesis, with ear- 
nestness and conviction, derived from 
actual scientfic practice, lie does so in a 
wholly untechnical and pleasantly dis- 
cursive manner. Having been engaged 
for many years in experimental research, 
he speaks with the assurance of easj 
familiarity. Use of the easy-going man- 
ner of the laboratory, rather than of the 
lecture room, makes this book attractive 
to the general reader. 

The Stock Market, by S. S. Iluebner, 
Ph.D., Sc.D., is a complete, up-to-date, 
authoritative, and understandably writ- 
ten account of the functions and ser- 
vices of organized stock markets and of 
the principles and practices underlying 
their operation. It explains clearly not 
only the relationship of the stock mar- 
ket to business enterprise and to the 
individual, but also the intricacies of 
the machinery by which securities change 
hands, the fundamental factors which 
control the prices of securities, and the 
legal principles and usages which gov- 
ern the operation of stock exchanges. 

.Much that is now misunderstood" con- 
cerning the regulations, practices, and 
services of our organized security mar- 
kets, which vitally influence the business 
dealings of all the people in the coun- 
try, are clarified in this book.

Paul Keene, a 1932 graduate, W h a{ 
ter taking graduate work at Yal* tt 
versity has been an instructor in 
amtics at Brother's College of Drew \] • 
versity, brought to the student body"'" 
the Monday morning chapel period ^ 
opportunity to enroll in the Ernerg en ^ 
Peace Campaign, a member of the N 
tional Peace Conference. 

Mr. Keene, after a brief review of t [, e 
present state of nervous apprehensio 
towards war which the nations of th 
world are now experiencing, explain 
the purpose of the Emergency p eace 
Campaign. The aim of this national en 
rollment for peace is to organize in t0 
one group those who, because of their 
pronounced convictions against \ var 
wish to be more closely associated with' 
others who hold the same views. All of 
which is but a part of the process of 
building a great movement in this coun- 
try, which must include all those who 
are willing to render sacrificial service 
for peace. 

Pamphlets were circulated which of- 
fered a choice of two committments. The 
first exacted a promise to abstain from 
all but defensive warfare, and the second 
renounced participation in any war, de- 
fensive or offensive. 

"Cannon fodder" from this institution 
will be very scarce in the next war if 
the number of promises made Monday

replied that we were the veriest of

line. The Dragon man-of-the-hour dash 
ed unmolested the remaining distance 
for the only six-pointed of the game. 
Drexel failed to convert the try for the 
extra point. 

Ten minutes later the D rex elites con- 
verted a field goal from placement from 
the twelve-yard stripe. Kress got off a 
poor punt, which went out of bounds on 
the Blue and White 26-yard line. Quinn 
hit tackle for five yards on the first 
Drexel play, and a forward pass from 
Ehmling to Fox advanced the oval to 
the 12. Stephens hit center for five 
yards, but two more plays netted only 
two yards. On fourth down Stevens made 
good a placement kick for three-pointer, 
Ehmling holding the ball. 

Lebanon Valley's most serious scoring 
threat came in the closing minutes of 
the final period, when they advanced to 
the Drexel 15-yard line, with a 25-yard 
run by Ed Kress, featuring the drive. 
This run, made from a fake forward 
pass formation, was the longest Lebanon 
Valley gain of the day. 

The Flying Dutchmen halted two sein- 
ing rallies of the Dragons during the 
contest. In the first period, the Drexel-

before an incompleted fourth-down pass 
concluded the drive, while late in the 
third session, the Valleyites held four 
downs on their own 6-yard line. 

In the matter of first downs, the vic- 
tors showed a slight margin over the 
vanquished, counting ten to nine racked 
up by the Valleyites.

Annville High Alumni 
Sponsor Halloween 
Parade Wednesday 

The Hallowe'en parade which is beiny 
sponsored by the Annville High School 
Alumni Association this year will in- 
clude the college students in the number 
of those who have been invited to parti- 
cipate. They may parade in groups or 
as individuals, according to the informa- 
tion received- Among the parade com- 
mittee members are Mr. Clements and 
Dr. Richie, from whom details may be 

The trek will start Wednesday, Oct. 
28 at seven o'clock from a point 
not as yet designated, and will continue 
for a period of from one and a half to 
two hours, ending at the Annville High 
School where refreshments will be 
served and a dance held, to which all 
the paraders are invited. 

All students and campus organiza- 
tions are urged to participate- Those 
organizations wishing to enter floats 
should get in contact with the chairman 
of the Activities Committee.

On Monday, October 26, during 
the chapel period, La Vie Collegienne 
will conduct a presidential straw vote 
among the faculty and student body. 
The results will be kept secret until 
they are published in the next issue 
of La Vie- Be sure to be in chapel on 
Monday morning to cast your vote 
for Roosevelt, Landon, Browder, or 
any other candidate you may prefer. 

We have it from one of the more mys- 
tic members, who professes clairvoyance, 
that at several points in the submitted 
works the mysterious Muses drew down 
closer, and he swears that upon one oc- 
casion Appollo . was descended halfway 
down the chimney. Of course, as ordi- 
nary mortals, we cannot pass on this 
affirmation, albeit we recognized great 
merit in some of the manuscripts. 

Mary Touchstone's light versification 
of "hopping" experiences, for example, 
received the unreserved acclamation of 
mortals and iuwnortals present and se- 
cured her admittance into the circle. 
Miss Touchstone is the daughter of mis- 
sionaries to China, who returned to this 
country early in her life. She will add 
greatly to the social and literary as- 
pects of the coterie with her unique 
personality and life experiences. 

Another freshman girl, Margie Gerry, 
was selected for admission after the 
reading of her vividly impressionistic 
production, 'A Moody Study." Miss 
Gerry is in the tradition of the ultra- 
modern cubist poets, but does not for- 
tunately go so far as Gertrude Steinism 
Her diction is rich, precise, and chro- 
matic, indicating a promising career in 
the club. 

The selection of the two new member- 
was succeeded by talk of framing a con- 
stitution. The society of litterateurs 
thus far in its history has been guided 
by precedent and extempore majority 
action. The group decided that it should 
be the task of the miniature constitu- 
tional committee — William Clark and 
Louis Straub — to convoke the nselves in- 
to a convention and reduce the society's 
nuncupatory statutes to writing. Both 
were deemed well equipped for this la- 
bor, being possessed with astute wis- 
dom, perspicacious vision, and sagacious 
judgment — as well as typewriters. 

One reform to be embodied in the new 
constitution will maintain a perpetual 
balance of sexes in the organization but 
of classes only when practicable. An- 
other change is in the time of meetings. 
In the future, head-scop Maxine Early 
announced, they are to be held monthly 
on every third Thursday. The hour will 
be 7:30 P. M.

The Sunday drivers had picked the 
farmer's fruit and his flowers, and their 
car was full of plunder. Pointing to an

besmirch the game and the players hon^

who shares in or condones such un-

Affair Resembles Casino ; 
Peppy Delphian Enthusi- 
asts Amuse Prospects 

Delphian Society invited all the new 
irirls to the initial opening of Annville's 
best casino, "The Delphian." Tables, 
each with a colorful centerpiece, were ar- 
ranged around the room. The guests 
and faculty members including Mrs. 
Lynch, Mrs. Richie, Miss Wood, Mrs. 
Wallace, Mrs. Derickson, Mrs. Green, 
and Mrs." Stokes were seated at tables 
in the rear. 

Four tables were reserved in the front 
tor Delphian members- The manager, 
Maurice, who in reality was Agnes Mor- 
ris wearing a tuxedo, ushered the diners 
to their tables. However, on closer ex- 
amination the "men" were recognized as 
Delphian girls dressed in a various as- 
sortment of male attire borrowed from 
the men's dorm. 

After the waitresses took the orders, 
Maurice introduced Delphian's peppy en- 
tertainer, Nora Franklin who sang, 
"These Foolish Things" and "My First 
Thrill." Nelda Kope's tinkling fingers 
played tune hits of the day. Elizabeth 
Bingaman, an applicant for a night club 
piano player, surprised the audience by 
playing classical music. Maurice in- 
formed her that classical music was 
taboo in a night club. Another applicant,

Girls' Hockey Squad 
Sees Champions Play 



Forty-Two Girls Journey To 
Philadelphia To View Ex- 
pert Contests 

At 9:30 Friday morning forty-two girl 
hockey enthusiasts boarded a bus bound 
for St. Martin's Field in Philadelphia. 
The group was chaperoned by Miss 
Henderson, Mrs. Lynch, and Miss Raab 
from Shippensburg. The bus stopped at 
Collegeville where the girls invaded an 
hotel to eat the lunch Eddie had pre- 
pared for them. Then on to Philadel- 
phia ! 

They arrived at St. Martin's just in 
time to see the newspaper photographers 
snapping a mass picture of the interna- 
tional teams represented. Eagerly scan- 
ning the group, they remarked on their 
appearance, their stature, and their dress. 
The Valley hockeyites were surprised

Frosh Hike Success 
Despite Sophmores 


Stokes and Derickson Chape- 
ron Yearlings; Leech and 
Saylor Eat Up Leavings 

Despite campuses, roomuses, and 
damp weather, the frolicking frosh 
staged their annual hike last Thursday 
in Kaufman's woods. At 5 o'clock groups 
of freshmen began to gather and move 
nonchalantly from the dormitories to 
meander up the road to the North. The 
getaway succeeded well until John Lynch 
and Bill Bender decided to start on their 
way. A lusty group of informed Sopho- 
mores had been trying to detain them by 
choice bits of conversation. Finally in a 
desperate effort to break away, Lynch 
and Bender boarded the Lynch car and 
started off in such a hurry that they left 
their scheming enemies grovelling in the 

As the crowd gathered, the fire began 
to burn, the food began to arrive, and 
the frosh began to feel secure in their 
wooded dell. Those fellows more chival- 
rously inclined sharpened sticks for the 
evening's wieners, and before long a 
quiet of content ensued. 

When the meal of hot dogs, cocoa, and 
cookies came to an end, the group start- 
ed singing "I love you truly," "When 
did you leave Heaven," and "Down by 
the old Mill Stream." Into this peaceful 
gathering burst at this time the Sophs, 
Howard Byer, Jay Musser, and Bob 
Strayer. Following them came the two 
upperclassmen, Roger Saylor and Wil- 
bur Leech. They drank what cocoa they 
could find and sat down around the fire. 
Again the inevitable Moller-Meyer, 
Leech-Ruppersberger, and Strayer-Long 
combinations appeared. Everybody had

1938 Quittie Shapes Up 
Final Contract Awarded 

The production of what competent ob- 
servers believe to be the most remark- 
able issue of the Quittapahilla in a dec- 
ade (sic) has fully gotten underway. 
The last contract, the printing agree- 
ment, was awarded to J. Horace Mac- 
Farland and Co. on Oct. 27. The pho- 
tography and engraving will be handled 
by the Sawny Studio and Canton En- 
graving Co. respectively. The staff has 
been quite pleased with the efficient and 
skilful manner in which the major part 
of the photography was handled by the 
Sawny representative last week. The 
proofs will be available shortly, and the 
business staff feels sure that their high 
quality will merit ? large volume of 
sales among the student body. The open- 
ing section of the book will be presented 
in a thoroughly unique and modernistic 
manner. Every feature in the book will 
represent a pleasing and novel advance 
in a subject that has unfortunately tend- 
ed to become stereotyped during the past 
years. The advertising section will do 
full justice to those who solicit the pat- 
ronage of the student body and readers 
through this medium. 

Delphian Women Launch 
New Literary Policy 

Delphian Literary Society again comes

but revising history by announcing that 
it intends to function as a true literary

orial the campus literary societies are 
losing sight of their true aim. Delphian 
has decided to give all the members a 
chance to display their own individual 
talents by having programs of a Kterary 

Furthermore Delphian wishes to an- 
nounce that beginning with today, their 
society room will be open to all day 
students. The students may have the 
privileges of all advantages the room

Deep Mystery Shrouding 
Philo Week-End Program 

Tomorrow night at the all-society 
function to be held in the chapel and the 
gym Philo will present a series of music- 
al and dramatic numbers of which the 
nature had not been disclosed as this is- 
sue went to press. 

It is thought, however, that their per- 
formance will be of a serio-comic nature, 
and satirical in purpose- In fact, Philos 
who are in the know hint that numerous 
individuals on the campus will probably 
be more or less surprised by the striking 
veri-similitude the course of events may 
take to incidences with which they are 
quite familiar. The ax is likely to fall, 
according to rumor, indiscriminately 
among both faculty and students, both 
males and females. To quote the chair- 
man of the Philo entertainment com- 
mittee, Louis Straub, "Perhaps with you, 
too, and you, and you, all is known. 
Where will the ax fall?" 

This question is causing considerable 
perturbation all over the campus, be- 
cause the rumor has been confirmed that 
the script for this event was prepared by 
three of the college's most widely in- 
formed and versatile writers — all Philos, 
of course. 

Men's Net Tournament 
In Semi-Final Round 


Cold, Rainy Weather Causes 
Delays In Play; Two Mat- 
ches Contested 

After many irksome postponements 
and delays, the fall tennis tournament 
has finally progressed to the semi-finals, 
two quarter final matches having been 
played, with the other two to be run off 
at the time of writing. 

In the upper bracket "Bud" Umberger 
polished off Art Evelev in a bitterly- 
fought match, winning in three sets, 6-1, 
0-6, 7-5. Evelev refused to bow obse- 
quiously to his formidable rival, how- 
ever, and after winning only one game in 
the first set, came back strong to take

In a straw vote held in chapel on 
Monday morning, October 26, Alfred M. 
Landon was "elected" to the presidency, 
at least as the choice of Lebanon Valley 
College students and faculty by a 9-5 
margin over Franklin D. Roosevelt. 

The Landon victory came as a blow to 
many who felt sure that the liberal senti- 
ment in the college would result in suc- 
cess for the Democratic candidate. 

However, by a vote of 219 for Landon 
to 120 for Roosevelt, and a tew scat- 
tered votes, the Republican candidate 
received support that showed convinc- 
ngly where the real feeling of Lebanon 
Valley students lies. 

Voters Take Poll Seriously 

That the faculty and student body 
meant business on Monday morning was 
shown by the intent manner in which 
they attended to the routine of casting 
the ballots- The air was surcharged with 
the characteristic tenseness usually 
found at affairs of state and national 
importance. There was little or no lob- 
bying, although staunch supporters of 
the major candidates are reported to 
have been influential in pre-vote acti- 

Representatives of La Vie Collegienne 
passed out specially printed ballots to 
the assembled students and faculty, who 
indicated their choices and returned the 
marked ballots to tellers stationed at the 
entrances. The counting of the ballots 
took place in strict privacy in the pres- 
ence of disinterested witnesses. The in- 
formation here given is the first official 
pronouncement of the result. 

Classes Show Marked Differences 

A study of the table given at the 
head of this article indicates pronounced 
Republican sentiment among the five 
groups represented in the poll. That 
faculty supporters of Thomas and 
Browder do not exist and that Roosevelt 
supporters are less among the seniors 
are shown immediately, but more subtle 
differences appear on closer statistical 

The following table shows the propor- 
tion of each group that voted for each 
of the candidates. 

Faculty vote, 74% for Landon, 26% 
for Roosevelt. 

Senior vote, 69.4% for Landon, 27.4% 
for Roosevelt, and 3.2% for Thomas. 

Junior vote, 59.5% for Landon, 38% 
for Roosevelt, and 2.5% for Thomas. 

Sophomore vote, 58.7% for Landon, 
33-3% for Roosevelt, and 8% scattered.

No. 10 





By John BlAIB 
(NSFA Release) 

The Lebanon Valley College straw vote is now history. The almost 2-to-l 
majority amassed by a candidate embodying the conservative principles of govern- 
ment and the rejection of candidates representing liberal elements provides a., 
interesting instance of the so-called liberalism of the American college. 

Lebanon Valley students are not alone in favoring the Republican candidate 
Returns from other colleges and universities exhibit a similar preference. Outside 
of several sectional universities, all the institutions "elected" Landon. 

However, it seems very odd that colleges, which are popularly supposed to 
comprise elements of liberal expression, should react in this way to this new deal 
or new form of government, especially since the former administration was receiv- 
ing blame from some quarters for not attempting to fight against sub-par con- 

Undoubtedly the results of La V.k's poll express only the feelings of a class. 
Nation-wide scientific straw votes instantly disprove any such claim for a Repub- 
lican victory. 

Referring to the results of the 1932 La Vm Presidential Poll and comparing 
them with the 19!3<> poll, we observe the following: 
The 1932 poll: 

66% of the votes were cast for Hoover, 16.Q$ for both Koo^evelt and Thomas, 
and .8% scattered votes. 
The 1936 poll: 

62.2% of the votes were cast for Landon, 34.1% for Roosevelt, 2.3% for 
Thomas, and 1.4% scattered votes. 

Assuming that the present generation of students represents the same social 
stratum as the one of four years ago; and that the percentage of Republican sup- 
port for these two polls is just about identical, what has become of the liberal ele- 
ment, represented by the Socialist Party in the 1932 poll? Has it thrown its sup- 
port to the Democrats? Or has there been a more complex transfer of partisan 

feeling among the various groups? 

We believe that those Rooseveltian measures which were passed during the 
last four years benefiting college students in general, and Lebanon Valley students 
in particular, have been influential in transferring support from the \arions par- 
ties into the Democratic camp. 

All in all, the 1936 poll is more representative, not only of Lebanon Valley 
College, but also of the country as a whole— however, in this one respect only— 
that the minority candidates received about \f/< of the total votes cast. If the 
Landon and Roosevelt percentages were interchanged, we may be inclined to ad- 
mit that "as Lebanon Valley College goes, so goes the nation." 

In the 1932 poll the Republican candidate defeated Roosevelt bv a 4-to-l ma- 
jority; this year Landon won by a JJ-to-l margin. Now, if Lebanon Valley College 
straw votes are any true indication as to whom the actual winner will be on No- 
vember third, then President Roosevelt will be re-elected by even a greater ma- 
jority of votes than he amassed in 1932. 

To the Editor of La Vie: 

Ulow me to comenmd you upon your 
recent editorial in support of President 
Roosevelt. 1 am glad to see that, at 
last, our paper is taking an interest in 
affairs of importance, and especially so 
because you have done so in such a line 
courageous fashion. 

I exhort you to continue your present 
policy of encouraging what you deem to 
be the truth, the more particularly be- 
cause your grasp of the political situa- 
tion seems to be unusually acute for one 
coming from that class of society which 
is apt to be bigoted and reactionary, 
'Ray for Our Side, 

Marcus Tullius.

To the Morons Who Edit La Vie, 
Asinine Sirs: 

Your recent pro-Roosevelt effusion in 
the editorial column, you might be in- 
terested to know, is creating quite a 
small furore in its own incoherent way 
on the campus. It has divided the stu- 
dent body into two distinct factions: 
first, those who consider it your weird 
and ill-advised attempt at sly humor, 
and secondly, the more radical, and quite 
possibly more rational bloc which favors 
your immediate deportation to the near- 
est violent ward. 

As far as we can glean with the aid of 
the finite intelligence available, you are 
urging us to vote for Roosevelt because 
' Landon, Roosevelt, Thomas, and Brow- 
der have handed down opinions on free- 
dom in education" and because "Thomas 
and Browder . . . decry all attempts to 
restrictive legislation," and also because 
John L. Lewis and other rabble-rousers 
are for Roosevelt. You then proceed 
with what you apparently hope is dis- 
arming naivete to confuse the meaning 
of Westbrook Pegler, a self-appointed 
funny-mans, styled by you "columnist 
extraordinaire" when he says with more 
than his usual imbecility that he does 
not believe youth is interested in his 
opinion, by remarking with smug com- 
placency that "yquth is interested in 
politics." You might add that black is 
now being worn in Paris. 

We are not merely axe-grinders of the 
opposite camp; on the contrary, we are 
for Roosevtlt ourselves. What we are 
carping about is your obvious reluctance 
to screen your own dearth of political 
intelligence from the student body lest 
they be led to think your idiocy typical 
of the supporters of liberalism, and ac- 
cordingly decide to have no truck with 
such obvious candidates for straight 
jackets A, B, and C. 

Quite sincerely yours, 

The Leftists.

To my (quite sincere) admirers, 

The editor is deeply grieved that hi 
"effusion" of October 22 has proved am 
biguous even to men of your keen in- 
sight. For the benefit of those with ir 
ferior intellectual equipment, we here- 
with summarize the several points whicl 
the editorial purposed to develop: 

1. Though the re-election of Roose 
velt is certain, we should consider the 
views of all candidates. 

2. The presidential candidates, to 
gether with their advocates, have ap 
pealed for the support of the youth of 
the country. 

3. The young people of the United 
States should be and are interested in 
the outcome of the coming election. 

4. Conscientious citizens believe in the 
principles of social justice, economic sta 
bility and equal opportuntiy for all. 

5. For four years President Roosevelt 
has striven toward these aims and will 
continue to do so. 

Washington, J). C. — Now that the Su- 
preme Court is back again on the job 
riding acts unconstitutional, the flow of 
syllobant words and phrases in Wash- 
ington has been greatly augmented. L 
must be said for the Court that it al- 
ways uses beautiful English in render- 
ing its decisions. And this beautiful 
English has had the disastrous effect 
of inspiring me into writing poetry. So, 
with full apologies to Lewis Carroll, 
who wrote the famous poem about '"Fa- 
ther William," 1 am taking the liberty 
of changing the name to "Justice Will- 
iam" and burbling into lyrics about him.

The New Books 



Bumblebees and Their Ways, by Otto 
Emil Flath, M.A., ScD., professor of 
biology at Boston University, is an at- 
tractive handbook which should inter- 
est every nature lover. It is the result 
of many years of special study of the 
life-history and habits of the true bum- 
blebees, as well as of the parasitic spe- 
cies, both in this country and in Europe. 
Since 1920 Dr. Plath has devoted a large 
part of his time to the solution of sev- 
eral interesting problems heretofore eith- 
er incorrectly or only partially solved 
His technique will be of value to anyone 
who may wish to carry on observations 
of his own. The style is one that the 
laymen can enjoy, and the text is en- 
ham ed by many illustrations. 

In Dramatis Personae, a new autobio- 
graphical volume by William Butler 
Yeats, the author tells of people whom 
he knew, events which stirred him, and 
the thoughts and interests which filled 
his mind during six vivid years in his 
thirties. The book contains, in addition 
to several long sections, the text of three 
small books previously issued in limited 
editions by the Cuala Press, of Dublin, 
under the titles of "Estrangement," "The 
Death of Synge," and "The Bounty ol 
Sweden"— material not previously pub- 
lished in any form in this country. 

It was during this peiiod that Yeats 
became a friend of Lady Gregory and 
lirst visited her at Coole House, of whose 
lovely lake he wrote in "The Wild 
Swans at Coole." He tells much that 
is interesting about Lady Gregory and 
other notable people whom he knew dur- 
ing these years— George Moore, Synge. 
Florence Farr, Arthur Symons, Edward 
Martyn. He tells also of collecting Irish 
folk-lore in the country around Coole, 
of the birth of the Irish National Thea- 
tie, of the politics of the period, of the 
impressions and experiences on his visit 
to Stockholm to receive the Nobel Prize 
in 1923 and his interest in Gaelic, and in 
actual experience of the supernatural. 

The whole book is written with the 
same beauty and sensitiveness which 
marked Mr. Yeats' earlier volume of 
recollections— ."Autobiographies! Rever 

les over Childhood and Youth and the 
Trembling of the Veil." 

The volume contains portraits of Lady 
Gregory, Edward Martyn, George Moore 
and Yeats himself, also a reproduction 
of Yeats' pastel of Coole House.

Chairs and tables; were hurriedly 
pushed out of the way. The boys, who 
had been waiting impatiently on South 
Hall steps, were invited into trre+iall for

Scoring touchdowns in each of the 
first three periods, the strong St. Thom- 
as eleven defeated the Blue and White 
gridders by an 18-0 count before a crowd 
of lour thousand fans at Scranton last 

Lebanon Valley could not penetrate 
their powerful opponents' defense, and 
at no time throughout the battle were 
the Flying Dutchmen within scoring dis- 
tance. The Blue and White never pro- 
ceeded inside of the St. Thomas 30-yard 
line and played a defensive game 
throughout most of the battle. 

The first Scrantonite touchdown came 
midway in the first quarter when Steph- 
anek went over from the eight-yard line, 
"the second tally came as a result of a 
^4-yard pass froni Henry Lefkowitz to 
Fred Davidson, which placed the oval on 
the four-yard line. Adam Stephanek 
lugged the ball over the final stripe for 
the second time on an off-tackle smash. 

Joe .Koons, St. Thomas pivotman 
made it possible for the Tommies to reg- 
ister their third six-pointer when he re- 
covered a blocked punt on the L. V. C. 
one-yard line. John Gilboy, a substitute 
back, toted the leather on the final scor- 
ing thrust. 

Coach Jerry Frock used few substi- 
tutes in the gruelling contest, only Walk, 
Friel, and Walmer seeing service in the 
Plue and White : backfield. 

The luckless Flying Dutchmen will at- 
tempt to return to the win column next

students this year are not supporting 
Thomas as well as they did in 1932 
when the Socialist candidate polled 
16.6% of the student vote. This year 
Thomas' supporters have dwindled down 
to 2%. In the 1932 La Vie Poll Hoover 
claimed 66% of the votes while Roose- 
velt and Thomas were ■ each allotted 
16.6% of the votes. This gave Hoover 
a 4-to-i margin over each of his near- 
est rivals, Franklin D. Roosevelt and 
Norman Thomas. 

In all, 352 votes were cast in La Vie's 
straw poll- Although this is not com- 
plete, it certainly represents a very good 
cross section of campus opinion. How- 
ever, "Straw votes in other colleges re- 

vealed corresponding high pluralities for.

Our colleague, Dan, the demon camer- 
aman, may be interested to know that 
several staunch observers have observed 
the Geep flittering hither and wither 
across the greensward and such. We 
warn him, however, that if he expects to 
get another shot of this now famous di- 
ploddicus, he had well nigh better have 
the police disarm Prof. Struble. II 
comes out that the good Doctor Struble 
became frightened when the beastly crit- 
ter sneaked up behind him at a recent 
rehearsal of The Truth About BVayds, 
and in his excitement chased the poor 
innocent Geepus-weepus out into the 
rain without an umbrella. So just as a 
playful gesture to show he wasn't sore, 
the Geep neatly skewered three of the 
prof's new tires with his horns, which 
have a special attachment for tire-skew- 
ering purposes. For some reason or 
other the good doctor resented it. Tsk, 
tsk upon you, doctor, and fie fie.

the ensuing set at love- Inspired by this 
victory, Evelev flashed all his power in 
the third set, but Umberger had what it 
takes in the clutch and emerged the vic- 
tor by the score of 7-5. 

In the lower bracket Homer Don- 
moyer running true to form, bowled 
over Ed Bachman in straight sets, 6-0, 
6-3. The score, it may be said, however, 
is not truly indicative of the opposition 
offered by the loser. 

To determine the finalists Umbcrger 
will meet the winner of the Shapiro- 
Saylor tilt, and Donmoyer will engage 
the victor of the Snell-Shroyer fuss. 

The cast for the production, though, 
rather enjoyed the business. In fact they 
jubilantly informed us that this is the 
first time in history that the Geep has 
appeared twice during the production 
of any one play. They are inclined to 
regard the circumstance as an infallible 
sign that their little comedy, which, by 
and by, they intend to unveil in about 
three weeks, will not only roll 'em in the 
aisle, but murder them. "Simply slay 
them, old screw, old thing — simply slay 
them," as they say in the quaint patios 
of the show biz.

Y. W. Recognition Service 

Late Sunday afternoon the "big sis- 
ters" took their "little sisters" to the 
annual Y. W. C. A. Recognition 
Service which was held in North 
Hall. After singing several hymns, 
Martha Faust, the Y. W. C. A. 
President, presided over the cere- 
mony. Romaine Stiles, Caroline Kohl- 
er, Audrie Fox, and Ernestine Jagne- 
sak read appropriate selections. Each 
"big sister" took her "little sister" 
forward and knelt with her before 
Miss Faust who asked the "little 
sister" to promise to "live the Jesus 
law of life on our campus." The "big 
sister" then pinned the Y. W. C. A. 
pin on her "little sister". They were 
each given a lit candle and when 
everyone had received one a proces- 
sion was formed and the whole group 
went to the front of North Hall and 
sans; "Follow the Gleam."

St. Joseph's To Oppose Blue And White Gridmen In Home- 
coming Battle Here; Campus Organizations Combine To 
Plan Annual Celebration 

The largest number of alumni ever present at an L. V. C. homecoming is ex- 
ited to attend the Fourth Annual Homecoming on Saturday, November 7. Cards 
^ ere mailed to alumni members and returned by them to indicate their intentions 
f coming back to their alma mater for a day of fun; these returned cards are 
the basis for predicting an unsurpassed attendance at the unsual events carefully 
planned by cooperating organizations on the campus. 

The alumni organizations have been unusually active during the past year and 
this is to be the result of their efforts. Dr. C. A. Lynch, Prof. H. H. Shenk, and 
Mr, P. L. Clements have taken many pains to make the event a huge success. They 
have worked hard to make up a program filling the day with college activity. 

Although the entire day will be de- 
voted to wholesome entertainment and 
exhilarating festivities, the principal fea- 
ture of the occasion will be the contest 
between the "Flying Dutchmen" and St. 
Joseph's fine team. This game promises 
to offer thrills for all who are enthusias- 
tic football fans. The other events will 
be characterized by an absence of long- 
winded speeches. Skits and other sur- 
prising stunts to captivate the interest 
and raise the spirits will be numerous. 

The homecoming's success will be the 
result of the efficient cooperation of the 
Men's Senate, W. S. G. A., the four lit- 
erary societies, Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A., 
and the "L" Club. The Senate is pro- 
viding colorful decorations for the foot- 
ball field, signs to designate different 
events, and the voices of the freshmen in 
the cheering sections. The W. S. G. A., 
realizing the need of keeping together the 
I V. C. supporters with strong vocal 
mechanisms, has decided to post signs 
indicating the locations of cheering sec- 
tions. Besides providing skits, the lit— 
erar y societies are contributing the use 
b their halls for registration and open- 
h °use. Dinner ticket sales in North Hall 
$f be in charge of the Y. M. C. A. The 
refreshments that are necessary to make 
a ! °otball game a complete success are 
t0 b e sold by the "L" Club, the organi- 
sation whose concession on the field is 
ex Pected to receive a large amount of 
Wronage from both students and guests.

Median 190; Dr. Reynolds 
Compiles Valuable Infor- 

For the past thirteen years, Lebanon 
Valley College has used the intelligence 
test as a part of her admission and guid- 
ance program. The test given this year, 
during Freshman Week, was the first of 
a new series begun here, as it was com- 
piled by the American Council of Educa- 
tion, whereas the previous ones have 
been in the form of the Ohio State Uni- 
versity edition. 

Although many people are skeptical 
as to the reliability of the intelligence 
test, it still stands as a»pretty fair indi- 
cation of the individual's mental ability. 
This type of examination has been used 
almost universally by schools and col- 
leges throughout the world, and the 
United States Government saw fit to 
apply it to thousands of soldiers during 
the world war. Last year it was applied 
to over 200,000 freshmen in more than 
500 institutions in our country. It has 
become definitely established in our 
educational system. The statistics for the 
test given this year at Lebanon Valley 
are available in the following chart, 
through the courtesy of Dr. Reynolds. 

From the following figures several 
important points may be deduced. First- 
ly, the median score for women is some- 
what higher than that for men. In all 
of the thirteen years these tests have 
been given at Lebanon Valley the median 
score for women has been higher in all

Kalo Show Boat Program 
Ready For Presentation 

Alumni and students will have two op- 
portunities to visit the Kalo Show Boat 
program this week-end. Tomorrow night 
at eight o'clock and on Saturday night at 
seven o'clock there will be presented for 
the college's enjoyment and entertain- 
ment the biggest of all Kalo Minstrels 
ever staged at L. V. C. 

With a group of experienced per- 
formers, a long period of preparation, 
special musical numbers with unusual 
arrangements, better jokes and a bigger 
band the show is worth many times the 
price of admission. 

The encouraging response given to a 
preview of the Minstrels at the Hum- 
melstown High School during activity 
period last Thursday assured the group 
of a splendid audience at that place- 
Hummelstown High School is only one 
of several places for which the show has 
been booked and this certainly is some 
guarantee of the merits of the perform- 
ance. In order to give college students 
and alumni ample time to go to the 
dance the curtains are scheduled to open 
at seven o'clock for Saturday night, an 
hour earlier than the first night's per- 

This show affords the alumni a most 
opportune chance to see the talent of the 
Literary Society of today and Kalo bids 
them welcome to the Homecoming pro- 
gram with "The Kalo Minstrels." 

Conserve Dance 

Students and their friends arc 
urged to attend the first conservatory 
dance to be held in the Annville High 
School gym following the Kalo Min- 
strels on Saturday evening. 

The best in swing music will be 
furnished for dancers and many 
prizes are being planned. Admission 
is fifty cents a couple, thirty-five cents 
stag. Prof, and Mrs. Carmean will 
lead the promenade. 

Universe Lecture Topic Monday 

In what was one of the most interest- 
ing lectures ever given at Lebanon Val- 
ley College, Dr. Roy K. Marshall, of 
Wilson College, briefly presented an or- 
derly plan of "This Universe of Ours" 
to the student body in chapel assembled 
on the morning of November 2. Dr. 
Marshall, an astronomer and lecturer »f 
high calibre, was aided by an excellenl 
collection of slides from the work of 
some of our largest observatories. 

The address treated of the main 

phases of popular astronomy. Beginning 
with the central object of our galaxy, 
the sun, Dr. Marshall explained briefly 
sun spots, eclipses, radiation pressure 
and associated solar phenomena. Pro- 
ceeding outwards, he discussed the 
moon, Venus, Mercury, and Mars devot- 
ing some time to the chief features of 
each, such as the craters of the moon, 
polar caps and the atmosphere of Mars, 
and the phases of Venus. Mention was

Chester Collegians Tumble

Frey Counts Touchdown And Main Adds Point To Account 
For 7-6 L. y. C. Triumph Over P. M. C. ; Spang Runs Back 
Opening Kickoff For Score . 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen took to the air last Saturday to register a 
sensational triumph over Penn Military College by a one-point margin in a scrappy 
last-ditch uprising in the final thirty seconds of play. The score: L. V. C. 7; 
P. M. C. 6. 

Three thrilled-packed plays provided all the scoring of the day and spelled 
defeat for the second successive year for the Cadets at the hands of the Blue and 
White gridmen, who seem to be making an annual custom out of this business of 
surprising P. M. C. elevens with their aroused play. The three dynamite-packed 
plays were crammed into a space of less than a minute of action, the first and the 
last thirty seconds of play. Frank Spang ran back the opening kickoff for a 
~ touchdown for the Chester collegians, 

All-Star Performance 
Features Joint Session 



Clio's Symphony in Black 
And White; Delphian, Phi- 
lo, And Kalo Burlesque 

Last Friday night witnessed the four 
literary societies of our college in a 
joint session for the entertainment of 
the frosh and other new students. This 
traditional program is put on each fall 
before the society pledging commences, 
for the purpose of throwing the varied 
talents of the members before the eyes 
of prospective proselytes. On this occa- 
sion, as usual, there was a splendid au- 
dience in attendance. 

Clio was the only outfit that went clas- 
sic, the other three sticking to the cus- 
tomary burlesque in their respective 
programs. The only slip-up noticed was 
the instance where several musicians in 
one of the male numbers found them- 
selves suddenly embarrassed by the ab- 
sence of some highly necessary music. 

Philo opened the program with a ra- 
dio broadcasting skit entitled "Major 
Bones' Amateur Hour." The announcer, 
Bill Clark, after bombarding the au- 
dience with his repertoire of polysylla- 
bles turned the mike over to Major 
Bones, who conducted the "Synchron- 
ized Flangerator Hour." The major told 
everything except just what a flanger- 
ator is. The gong sure took a beating as 
various amateur artists, including "tight 
rope walkers" etc. performed. (It is 
still a matter of great wonder whether 
the adjective in this case modifies "rope" 
or "walkers.") 

Clio then took the situation in hand 
and presented a "Symphony in Black 
and White." It consisted of numbers 
entailing much genuine artistry. Ruth 
Goyne, Emily Kindt, Sara Light, Jean 
McKeag, Lucille Maberry, Isabel Cox, 
and Arlene Hoffman, not to mention the 
two pretty damsels who made the sil- 
ent announcements for the acts, were the 
performers. The program was entirely 
musical, except for the novelty dance 
performed by Miss McKeag. 

Delphian put on a court trial, in which 
the society as a whole brought suit 
against the L. V. C. faculty on grounds 
of everything from fifth degree murder 

(Oontiimed on Page 3, Column 4) 

but the Flying Dutchmen had the last 
laugh when Raymie Frey snared a for- 
ward pass in the end zone and Harper 
Main added the extra point that meant 
victory for the Blue and White. 

It was Eddie Kress who tossed the 
touchdown pass to the lanky Frey, the 
completed toss being good for a 14-yard 
gain. With the score thus deadlocked 
at 6-all, the success or failure of the 
Blue and White point conversion became 
a matter of utmost importance. Harper 
Main was elected to try a placement kick, 
and as a dead silence spread over the 
crowd, the L. V. C. halfback's boot split 
the uprightg high above the crossbar and 
the gallant rally of the Dutchmen had 
been successfully consummated. 

Hardly less sensational than the final 
Valley thrust was the touchdown run- 
back of the opening kickoff by Frank 
Spang, P. M. C. halfback. Main's initial 
boot sailed through the air to the 15- 
yard mark, where Spang momentarily 
fumbled. Picking up the bounding oval, 
he cut toward the right sidelines, where 
Frank Burk, Cadet end, cut down two 
Dutchmen to give his team-mate a tem- 
porary opening. 

Spang sailed full steam ahead down 
the sidelines and had penetrated the en- 
tire Valley defense by the time he 
reached midfield. Here he picked up sev-

No. 11 


For the past four years Lebanon Valley College sons and daughters have made 
their annual trek home. This Saturday the campus will witness, from all indica- 
tions, the largest group of alumni ever assembled at Lebanon Valley. 

No little credit is due Dr. H. H. Shenk and Mr. P. L. Clements for their un- 
tiring efforts to make Saturday a banner day. Campus organizations are cooper- 
ating to add to the success of the week-end. The team is going places and the old 
school spirit is undergoing a transition which had its inception in Dr„ Lynch's 
glowing tribute to the football team in chapel this week. The promise of an extra 
holiday if we defeat our traditional Albright rivals later this season just about put 
the finishing touches to this revival of school spirit. 

For the average undergraduate Homecoming will be merely another week- 
end. The students fail to appreciate the real significance of Homecoming until 
they, themselves, experience the thrill of coming home. These Homecoming Alumni 
are from all walks of life. . . . Their occupations, nationalities, and religions are as 
varied as their homes. . . . But they have one unifying principle . . . the traditions 
instilled in them by their alma mater. Whatever their individual differences, they 
are one when Lebanon Valley College calls. 

One of the purposes of Homecoming is to keep alive the fraternity and loyalty 
created and fostered during college days [. . . to enable the far-flung son and daugh- 
ter of Lebanon Valley to rekindle and carry back with them to their homes their 
individual lamps . . . the traditional torches of education and progress, embracing 
the courage and spirit they knew in college. 

It will be at Homecoming that the idealisms of college years will receive a new 
impetus and the hearth back home will cast forth a bigger and better glow of love 
and idealism . . . encouraging all those who .come in contact with it to live that this 
may be a better world and the honor and glory of Lebanon V alley College may 
preserve it so and maintain sorely needed Christian ideals.

made of the numerical attributes of 
each. The larger planetary bodies, Jupi- 
ter and Saturn, were discussed in turn. 
The rings of Saturn and the moons of 
Jupiter were explained to some extent. 
The speaker then passed on to a consid- 
eration of planets and asteroids with a 
few remarks concerning each. The vari- 
ous types of nebulae and star clusters 
were taken up, and the existence of oth- 
er galaxies outside our own was dem- 
onstrated. There was also a short ex- 
planation of the methods of astronomy 
and the units of distance employed in 
celestial measurement. The workings of 

one of the large telescopes was demon- 
strated, together with a few words as to 
the position of astronomy among the 

The object of the speaker was to point 
out to the laymen present the precise 
fashion in which our universe is built 
up, and to clarify this concept in the 
mind of the individual. It is our belief 
that he succeeded remarkably well. 

Immediately after the main lecture, 
Dr. Marshall presented a brief sympo- 
sium on "Our Expanding Universe" to a 
group of advanced students and faculty 
members in the mathematics lecture 
room. According to observations, the 
external galaxies are receding from our 
own at a rate which increases at approx- 
imately 525 kilometers per second for 

The Season's Dramatic 

each mega parsec of distance which the 
galaxy is removed from our solar sys- 
tem. That these galaxies are retreating 
is evidenced by a characteristic shift to 
the red of the bright lines in their spec- 
tra. This is simply the light analogy of 
what is commonly known to the physic- 
ist as the "Doppler effect." The abso- 
lute distance of these galaxies is cal- 
culated by comparing their magnitude 
to the brightness of standard luminosity 
stars such as the Apheid Variables and 
the star clusters of the lesser Magell- 
anic Cloud, whose distances have already 
been determined by simple trigonometric 

In effect, continued Dr. Marshall, we 
might consider our universe as a uni- 
verse intermediate between a system con- 
taining all matter and no motion and u 
system totally composed of motion and 
no matter. Such a universe as the latter 
might be imagined as one discrete lump 
of matter in which man, if he existed, 
could see completely about himself in- 
cluding the back of his neck. Then some 
infinitesimal amount of motion occurred 
and the mass began to expand. If any- 
thing happened, it had to be either an 
expansion or contraction, but the 
chances of a contraction have been cal- 
culated at one in several million. If this 
expansion approaches infinity, as it is 
tending, we would have a universe com- 
posed of nothing but motion, since any 
muss divided by an infinite volume would 
give a density of zero. 

Many explanations have been ad- 
vanced as to the reason for this expan- 
sion. The most simple one is that of E. 
A. Milne who states that when the galax- 
ies began expanding those that travelled 
fastest got the furthest away. This 
sounds logical, but it does not explain 
the regular distribution of the galaxies. 
MacMillan, of the University of Chi- 
cago, says they aren't expanding at all, 
but that the light loses energy from tra- 
velling the enormous distances, thereby 
causing the shift to the red that we take 
for the Doppler effect. 

However, it is the work of Einstein, 
Robertson, and the Abbe' Lemaitre that 
gives the most satisfactory explanation. 
By it, we may consider ourselves as liv- 
ing on the three-dimensional surface of 
a four-dimensional spherical universe 
that is being expanded much as a rubber 
balloon is blown up. Therefore, our Eu- 
clidean geometry will not hold good out 
i.i space, for the properties of space 
depend upon the amount of matter. This 
hypothesis has actually been confirmed 
by the observation that rays of light 
are deflected from their path while pass- 
ing through the gravitational held of the 

/. R. C. Forum Discusses 
Presidential Campaign 

When the International Relations Club 
met last Tuesday night at the home of 
Dr. Bender, an open forum discussion of 
the pre:idential campaign was held to 
determine who should occupy the White 
House for the next four years. After 
a very spirited discussion it was found 
that club members favored Governor 
Landon 6-to-5. However, there was a 
general prediction that President Roose- 
velt would remain in office. The sup- 
porters of Governor Landon, principally 
Edgar Messersmith and Charles Kinney, 
charged the present administration with 
waste and extravagance, and lack of a 
definite policy. On the other hand, pro- 
New Dealers including Ted Loose, Ther- 
esa Stefan, and Calvin Spitler main- 
tained thai drastic action on the part of 
the government was necessary to alle- 
viate the depression, and that the under- 
lying theory of the New Deal is basic- 
ally sound. 

Annual 1 ug-o'-War 

Don't fail to come to the banks of 
the Quittie at 9:00 A. M. sharp this 
Saturday morning and watch the boys 
of '39 and '40 strain at the hemp in 
the annual tug-of-war. The Men's 
Senate promises that the tug will be 
carried out with all expediency as 
it is the first event of a crowded 
day of home-coming events.

terback, attempted to convert the extra 
point from placement, but his boot was 
partially blocked and went wide of the 

The remainder of the opening half was 
rather evenly contested, with P. M. C. 
having a slight advantage in the going, 
although the magnificent punting of Ed 
Kress kept the Cadets at bay. After the 
hitcrmission, however, the Flying Dutch- 
men seeemd to gain the upper hand and 
were operating in their opponents' ter- 
ritory throughout the last two periods. 

Only a great goal-line stand by the 
Chester Cadets prevented a Valley 
touchdown shortly before the Flying 
Dutchmen finally did succeed in cross- 
ing their foes' goal line. 

"Small" Fry, the pass catcher 

Taking the ball on their 35-yard line, 
the Blue and White eleven marched to 
within six inches of the end zone be- 
fore being finally halted. Christian Walk 
opened with a toss io Main for a 15- 
yard gain, and the latter dashed ten 
more yeards before he was finally 
downed on the P. M. C. 39. Walk faded 
for another forward pass, and just as 
he seemed to be bottled for a vital loss, 
he got away a heave which Frey 
snatched out of the arms of two Cadet 
defenders on the Penn Military two- 
yard marker. 

With four downs to make the remain- 
ing distance to the end zone, a Valleyite 
score seemed imminent, but the Cadet 
forward wall put up a stout defense that 
held the Flying Dutchmen at bay for 
the time being. 

P. M. C. immediately punted out, and 
the Flying Dutchmen took off once 
again, this time from the Cadet 23-yard 
line. McFadden knocked down Kress' 
pass to Frey in the end zone, but suc- 
cessive completions of overhead heaves 
to Tindall and Main gave the Blue and 
White a first down on the 13. An at- 
tempted lateral lost a yard, and then 
Kress tossed the final aerial bomb which 
blasted P. M. C. out of picture.

Friendly Hour Meets 

The South Hall girls, with Ro- 
maine Stiles presiding, conducted 
Friendly Hour last Sunday night. 
After several hymns had been sung 
by the group, Lena Shaw read the 
scripture lesson, and Claire Adams 
gave a short talk on the three-fold 
nature of a girl's personality. Every 
girl, Miss Adams stated, is social, 
spiritual, and cultural. The all- 
around girl blends all three into a 
perfect personality. 

Girl Hockeyites 

Prepare For 
Homecoming Day Game 

The hockey candidates have been di- 
vided into three different squads, and 
are known as the United States, the 
Scots, and the Czechs. The U. S., cap- 
tained by Ernestine Jagnesak, have de- 
feated both the Scots and the Czechs 
in their practice sessions, while the Scots 
defeated the Czechs in their game. A 
varsity team has not been chosen as yet. 
Many promising new and old candidates 
have attended practice. 

As part of the Homecoming program, 
next Saturday morning at 10:30 a. m. 
a Lebanon Valley hockey squad will 
meet the Harrisburg Hockey Club. Last 
year on Homecoming day the L. V- 
girls lost by the score of 2-1 to the Har- 
risburg Club. This year the girls are 
out to win and would appreciate the 
support of the student body and friends 
at the game next Saturday.

Heiland presented the charges, while At- 
torney Morrison maintained an able de- 
fense before Justice Mason. The suits 
the gals wore were a perfect fit, to say 
the least. The highlights of the evening 
came when Hans, dog and all, was rep- 
resented with his customary, "you know, 
I don't care myself, but the faculty would 
get after me." 

Kalo terminated the program with 
"Kalo School Days." Dave Byerly, long 
coat tails, specs, and all, did his best to 
control a group of temperamental brats 
who insisted on breaking up class disci- 
pline and "playing music." Master Good- 
man sang "Shortnin' Bread," and Mas- 
ter Shroyer sang about the age old feud 
of "The Martins and the Coys." The 
most striking of the Kalo numbers was 
a violin selection played by George Yo- 
cum while the stage was flooded with a 
ghostly light. The little "girl" who 
banged on the bull fiddle also received 
"her" share of plaudits. 

In conclusion let us hope that the new 
students weren't scared by the high 
grade of talent exhibited. Last minute 
reports with respect to the news con- 
cerning the pledges seem to indicate 

Hal Kroske, hard-tackling pivot 
man, who has played plenty of 
ruggd football for L. V. C. during 
the present as well as the past 
two seasons. A dependable passer, 
the former Princeton Prep ace 
has continued to play a nice of- 
fensive and defensive game al- 
though suffering the effects of an 
early season rib injury.

were women; the two lowest, men. Of 
the twenty highest, twelve were men and 
eight, women. Of the twenty lowest, 
fourteen were men and six, women. We 
are ' not able to compare these results 
with the results of previous years at this 
college because of the change in the 
form of examination, but the median 
score for other schools in 1935 was 184. 
Unfortunately this seems to denote that 
Lebanon Valley students possess a some- 
what lower aptitude than average. In 
previous years, this was not the case.

Stevenson To Coach 
Debaters This Year 


Question Chosen Deals With 
Labor Conditions. Several 
Debates Scheduled 

At a convention of the Debating As- 
sociation of Pennsylvania Colleges held 
last month at the Hotel Harrisburger, 
Harrisburg, the subject for the debating 
season was chosen. After discussing 
several questions submitted to the con- 
vention, it was decided to debate the sub- 
ject, "Congress should be empowered to 
fix minimum wages and maximum 
hours for industry." The Oregon Plan of 
debate will again be used. 

A resolution was adopted to send a 
note of appreciation to the founders of 
the association- On this list, Dr. H. H. 
Shenk, of Lebanon Valley College was 
mentioned as one of the original found- 
ers of the Association. Another resolu- 
tion discouraged the use of various 
Handbook services and bureaus in 
training debaters. Professor John A. 
Tallmadge, of Cedar Crest College, and 
President of the Circuit made the in- 
teresting comment that the United 
States, France, and England are the 
0ri 'y great nations in which freedom 
ot speech is enjoyed, and in which de- 
bating can flourish without restriction. 

C. H. Stevenson will again coach 
t!, e debaters, who will meet regularly 
wit h the International Relations Club. 
Students interested in this type of ac- 
tlv 'ty should contact either Dr. Stev- 
Wison or team managers Grace Naugle 
an <l Robert Kell. Several debates are 
n °w being scheduled with other Penn- 
sylvania colleges.

Frosh Pull Sophs 
Into Cold Quittie 


Straub Ducked; Sophs Rally 
To Submerge Thompson; 
Fatality : Tschop's Trousers 

ne K. Yeager, L 

1 1 in. 

Not the least of the home coming 
features of last Saturday was the an- 
nual tug of war between the freshmen 
and sophomores. This contest is well 
liked (by the spectators) for its certain 
watery developments since the con- 
tending teams are so situated that the 
majestic Quittapahilla with all its mud- 
dy majesty flows between them- The 
losing side thus leaves terra firma and 
"launches out into the deep." 

By nine o'clock the two teams were 
on hand, every man confident, but never- 
heless unable to refrain from casting 
v furtive glance, now and then, into the 
silent depths of the slowly moving water. 
Dennis Geesey was the first one in — 
hat is, he stuck his finger in to ascer- 
tain how cold it was. His expressed 
ipinion was that it was even colder than 
it looked. Someone produced a coin, 
(we understand it was a citizen of 
Annville, who performed this incredible 
feat) and the captains tossed for sides. 

Having determined which side was 
whose, the teams took up their posi- 
ions. The men's senate had procured 
a long rope somewhere, which Paul 
Myers was commissioned to take across 
he Quittie. The coaches selected their 
darting lineups and gave a last minute 
->ep talk. The leader of the yearling 
aggregation was a certain Curvin Liv- 
ingston Thompson, who, it seems, hails 
from York. (A good looking lad in- 
deed.) The coach of the sophs was one 
of the seniors — whose name for the 
nonce has escaped us. Since his side 
'ost, it seems scarcely necessary to as- 
certain his identity, anyhow. It is the 
fro h coach that we shall bear in mind 
as we go along. 

When the starting whistle blew, both 
teams lay back into the foot holes which 
some odious vermin had persisted in

Annual Minstrel Show 
Is Kalo Presentation 


Jokes, Musical Numbers Fea- 
ture Annual Show Before 
Large Audience In Chape! 

Last Friday and Saturday nights Kalo 
pre ented the annual minstrel show in 
Engle Hall at 8 and ? o'clock respective- 
ly. Many were the props and artistic the 

Kalo's threat to ring up the curtain on 
time Friday night was waylaid by those 
persons who thought it stylish to be 
late. However, we must hand it to the 
boys that, despite the rather unreceptive 
audience that night, they certainly put 
on a refreshing shov Special credit is 
due Dick Smith for his untiring efforts 
in holding the rehearsals, to Fred Saylor 
and his crew for the staging and light- 
ing, and to Stewart Goodman for his 
fine musical direction. For the musical 
arrangements we bestow a bouquet of 
roses upon George (Gershwin) Yokum. 

The curtain parted to the overture, 
"Southology," and a lively opening 
chorus by the Stevedores. The six 
Darkie Dandies in the forms of Shroyer, 
Shenk, Gongloff, Leech, Speg, and 
Smith took over the program with their 
sly remarks and then George Yokum 
went into his song of "Old Man River" 
accompanied by Bob Smith at the organ, 
followed by the chorus with the orches- 
tra. The musical numbers, broken only 
by Gongloff's knee act and the rest of 
the clowning, continued with the Fid- 
dlers Three (Hatz, Zettelmoyer, and

Armistice Day At L. V. C. 

Armistice Day on our campus was 
observed in an objective way in the 
chapel service on Wednesday morn- 
ing, with the college Young Women's 
Christian Association, which is sched- 
uled to present one service a month, 
in charge- After the general devo- 
tions, a mezzo-soprano selection, 
"Great Peace Have They Which 
Love Thy Law", by Rogers, was sung 
by Mildred Gangwer. She was ac- 
companied a{t the organ by Sara 
Light. After a Scripture selection re- 
lating itself to peace was read by 
Flora Strayer, Edith Metzger gave 
a short, pointed talk on the subject 
of the relationship of wisdom to the 
desire for peace. Then as a fitting 
conclusion to this short program the 
entire group of students and faculty 
nembers stood at silent attention and 
prayer while someone off stage 
played "Taps" on a trumpet, in 
memory of the valiant ones who have 
jiven their lives for the perpetuation 
if high national ideals in our country.

one went home, tired and happy, after

Tight Battle For Three 
Periods Deteriorates Into 
Rout In Final Quarter 

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it's c 
grand game. It's a tightly-waged, whol- 
ly respectable, and entirely interesting 
ball game. In fact, it's sweet football to 
watch — for three periods. But, alas, it 
turns sour in the final period and ends 
in a putrid mess with St. Joe on top, 
15 to 0, and the Flying Dutchmen saying 
"Doctor" in quavering tones. 

Even the extra dash and pep of the 
L. V. C. Homecoming cannot instill the 
men in the Blue and White with that 
vital scoring punch essential to winning 
any old ball game. Although the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen make a close struggle of 
it most of the way, in the end it's St. 
Joe who has a couple of aces in the holt 
and comes through with fifteen precious 
points to defeat Valley for the first time 
in the history of grid relations between 
the two schools. 

The action starts off fine during the 
first half, with L. V. C. prancing and 
dancing in Hawk territory most of the 
time and knocking at the door of Touch- 
downland several times. The Josephians 
make their first offensive advance into 
Valley territory as the half ends, and 
it's five to three in favor of L. V. C. in 
the matter of first downs during the first 
two periods. Play remains close in the 
third quarter, and, although St. Joe 
scores, the large crowd of Lebanon Val- 
ley rooters still think the grid gentlemen 
from I>. V. C. can pull the game out of 
the fire. However, the Philadelphia grid- 
ders have slightly different ideas about 
the whole matter and have the man pow- 
er and extra ounces of energy to put

Clio Plans Tea For 

Pledges Next Tuesday 

Last Thursday night the Sophomore 
members of Clio conducted the usual 
ritual through which the pledges are put 
in order to become members of the so- 
ciety. The members who attended the 
meeting were entertained and highly 
amused by the pledges. Although the 
actual activities of the meeting cannot 
be disclosed, suffice it to say that thirty- 
one pledges have been received by Clio. 

At a business meeting on Tuesday, 
the pledges were given their oath of al- 
legiance to the society and were admitted 
as members. 

Next Tuesday afternoon from 4:00 
to 6:00 P. M., Clio will entertain its new

No. 12 


This year, handicapped with four veteran players removed from the eleven, 
we face the most sought-after victory of the season over our traditional Albright 

In no way should there be any diminution of school spirit when we go to 
tame the Lions. Certain unforeseen bad breaks should not have any effect on the 
student body as a whole. 'I he psychological effect of murmurings from certain 
quarters will produce no good to the team. The Dutchmen must go to Reading 
on Saturday with the entire school cheering them on to victory. 

This is the last game of the season, so let's demonstrate to everyone in general 
and ourselves in particular that we have the good of the team and college at heart 
by supporting the Flying Dutchmen from now until the last minute of play on 


Again the arrival yesterday of Armistice Day recalls to mind one of the most 
dramatic days in all history. Eighteen years ago, when all the world was sunk in 
despair with the endless horrors engulfing it, into which it had flung itself stupidly 
and seemed incapable of ever escaping from, came the glorious news of the cessa- 
tion of fighting, of mass murder and world-wide destruction. 

Since those days, there has grown up a desire for permanent peace, which has 
no parallel in the world's history. 

But while this longing for peace is becoming deeply ingrained in the hearts of 
men, the fortunes of nations and the exigencies of time offer no real assurances of 
its permanence. Those who seek peace will have to wage tireless war and un- 
ending propaganda to make peace as popular as war has always been and as im- 
perishable as the sacred rights of mankind. 

Those who think that the danger of war is passed are living in a fool's para- 
dise. Today we have to face a militarism far more powerful and destructive than 
the militarism which brought the disaster of the World War. 

This is the achievement of governments. But among the peoples the idea of 
war resistance spreads. Every citizen must challengingly and fearlessly extend this 
idea. They must lead the people to take disarmament into their own hands and to 
declare that they will take no part or lot in war or in the preparation for war. It 
requires only that all who hate war shall have the courage to say that they will 
not have war. 

This Armistice Day period is a fitting time to reflect on the greatest debacle 
in the history of man. An honest reply to the question, "What was accomplished ? 
Did they die in vain?" will prove a great value in appraising the victories on the 
battlefield. In proportion to the degree in which Armistice Day makes people 
peace conscious, so great is its benefits. 

Prehistoric Pachyderm 
Leaves Curious Traces 

Discovered at approximately 38 lati- 
tude and 78 longitude four pits, or 
rather three dents and one pit. Curiously 
placed as if at the four corners of a rec- 
tangle, and just about fifty yards east 
of the Men's Dorm. Could they be 
meteoric or volcanie in origin? Or pos- 
sible prehistoric footprints? That's get- 
ting pretty close to it! 

Last Saturday just at dusk a group of 
the more inquisitive had the privilege of 
seeing a modern ponderous pachyderm 
wallowing in our verdant campus. It 
seems that some misguided soul had di- 
rected the driver of the Reading Central 
Transportation Company's bus No. 354 
carrying the victorious St. Joe gridders 
to turn his vehicle on the campus. He 
advanced ten yards and sank hub-deep 
in spongy turf. It seemed for a time 
that Mother Earth had again claimed 
one of her sons, indeed all the St. Joe 
gridders and another bus couldn't pull 
him out. Suggestions flew thick and fast 
as they are wont to do. Dr. Lynch was 
overheard humorously suggesting that 
he and Lupton combine weights and lift 
out the be-mired bus. That bus might 
still be cuddled there if a mighty little 
tractor from the road-builders north of 
Annvjille; hadn't been mustered. This 
tiny powerhouse said, "Pooh, pachy- 
derm", and with a grunt lifted ol' No. 
354 back to his level. 

The aforementioned driver of No- 
354 made himself responsible for any 
damage done by his steed and St. Joe 
traveled on to a belated dinner, leaving 
holes in our lawn as grim reminders of 
some of the holes they made through 
our line.

digging. After a few minutes it became 
evident that the sophs were either weak- 
ening or slipping, because the linear dis- 
tance between the shore of the Quittie 
and Vincent Nagle's feet was diminish- 
ng with astounding rapidity. It was 
thought for a while that the rope was 
shrinking, because of the warm Novem- 
ber sunshine, but it proved otherwise, 
and it was not long before the afore- 
said feet were about twenty inches be- 
neath the oozy surface of some good old 
Pennsylvania mud. If misery loves com- 
pany it must be admitted that Nagle was 
soon to be in the sublimest heights of 
ecstasy, because in a very short while 
he had all the rest of the team in with 
him. An interesting phenomenon oc- 
curred just as Tschop's feet came into 
the water: those who were watching 
that end of the tug swear that the water 
level rose several inches, but the reason 
for that has since been learned to be a 
very simple one. 

The teams then changed sides, after 
a short rest, and repeated the process,

with the exception that the frosh got a 
taste of their own medicine this time. It 
was during this heat that the accident 
occurred. It seems that something hap- 
pened to Tschop's pants. After all, being 
dragged over the ground like that will 
brii.g most any pair of pants to an un- 
timely end. Anyway, a very generous 
portion of Bob's pink hide was ex- 
posed to the curious gaze of the now 
silent spectators. 

Since each team had now been pulled 
into the water, the score stood tied. As 
is the custom in case of a tie, both 
teams pulled on dry land to find the win- 
ner- The spot picked was a level place 
on the other side of the Quittie. Here 
the rodents with the spades got busy 
again digging holes, and it was no time 
till it looked like no man's land. This 
heat went the limit of twenty minutes, 
with neither team being able to pull their 
opponents over the center line. Upon 
agreement of the coaches a five minute 
rest was called, after which the tug was 
resumed, with the understanding that the 
team having the advantage at the end of 
that time would be declared the winner. 
The frosh had this advantage when the 
time was called, and thus carried off the 
honors of the day.

stopped on the 10 after earning a iirst

in scoring position. Walk hits the line 
for two yards to the 5. Kress adds ;t 
yard at center. A lateral, Kress to Walk.- 
is incomplete with the latter out in the 
clear near the right sideline, and St. Jot 
recovers on the six-inch line to prevent 
a Valley score. Cole boots out from be- 
hind the goal line and Kress again places 
L. V. C. in scoring position by returning 
from the St. Joe 40 to the 28. A Kress 
aerial intended for Main is knocked 
down by Harrison. Walk hits the line 
for about a yard, but a pass Kress for 
Fridinger, is a trifle long. Day ends this

Frank Rozman, Steelton tackle, 
captained the Flying Dutchmen in 
the Homecoming Day battle 
against St. Joseph's. He was a 
tower of strength in a sturdy line 
that did yeoman duty against the 
heavier Hawk forward wall, the 
sterling play of the entire front 
force of the Blue and White be- 
ing one bright spot in the close 



0tl -ter nicely, but is hit on the 40 

he return. Kress is bottled in by a 
l lUa r tr ■ 

et of Hawks for a five-yard loss, 

out cracks the center of the line for fit' 
teen yards, inches short of a first down 
On his next attempt Kress forces the 
ooys with the measuring stick to ad- 
vance to the St. Joe 44. Friel zig-zags 
for a two-yard gain, then loses a yard 
and a Kre.s pass is grounded to put an 
end to the temporary L. V. C. march 
Kress punts to Smale on the 13, where 
Slodysko nails him in his tracks on a 
nice tackle. On tnird down Cole quick- 
kicks out of bounds on his own 40-yard 
line, but St. Joe regains possession two 
piays later when Day intercepts Friels 
toss on his own 31-yard marker. Hart 
man heaves the initial Hawk aerial at 
tempt of the game, but it's too long for 
Mancauskas, traveling fast in L. V. C 
territory. Smale registers a first down 
on the 43, shaking off several Valley 
tacklers in a nice run. Heisch tosse# 
Marhefka for a two-yard loss. Friel just 
misses an interception on the second St. 
Joe overhead attempt, but a third pass 
is good for a long gain, called back be 
cause the passer is not five yards behind 
the line of scrimmage when he heaves the 
aerial. On an exchange of punts Smale 
returns a Kress boot nineteen yards to 
the L. V. C. 4(i-yard line, as the Hawk* 
penetrate Valley territory for the first 
time. Three St. Joe plays cost then, 
about a yard loss as the half conies to 
an end. 

McLaughlin kicks off to open the third 
period, Kress goi.ig from his own 15 to 
33 on the return. Friel is smothered for 
a seven-yard loss, and Kre„s punts to 
Smale, who gallops from the 33 t> the 
42. Hartman smacks tackle for six 
yards, tries again and is stopped, and 
backs away a third time, only to be 
stopped short of a first down. L. V. C 
roughs Cole after the latter has punted, 
and the Hawks obtain a first down. Cole 
is tossed by Davies for a yard loss. 
Hartman to Heimenz is no dice, but 
Hartman to Smale is good for ten yards 
Cole smacks center for a first down on 
the L. V. C. 26, and St. Joe is in pos- 
session within scoring distance for the 
first time. Hartman's pass intended for 
Morrison is incomplete as the Hawks 
take to the air. Another toss, Cole to 
Hartman, is no good. A snappy double 
lateral play, Sarnie to McLaughlin to 
Heimenz carries the ball to the L. V. C 
10 as Main finally makes the tackle 
Main throws Hartman for a loss of a 
yard after the latter completes a for- 
ward. The Hawks repeat the dating 
double lateral play, Heimenz going to 
the 3-yard line on the well-executed for- 
mation. A third aerial play is stopped 
for no gain, and Hartman steps back 

to the 12-yard line for a field goal at- 
tempt on fourth down. The oval is in 
perfect position directly in front of the 
goal posts and Hartman converts the 
trial from placement efficiently for the 
Iirst score of the contest. 

Kress takes the return kickoff on the 
3(i-yard line. Two passes and one run- 
ning play are ineffective and Kress 
punts to Smale, who returns to the St. 
Joe 40. Smale and Heimenz hit the line 
for six yards on two plays, and Cole 
makes two yards before literally being 
thrown in rodeo fashion by Frey. Cole 
kicks out of bounds on the L. V. C. 29. 
A pass from Kress intended for Friel 
is incomplete, then the Hawk line throws 
Kress for a five-yard loss. Captain Man- 
causkas, of the Hawks, throws Tindall 
for no gain on an attempted end sweep. 
Smale returns Kress' punt from his own 
40 to the 48. Marhefka is smeared by- 
several Valleyites for a six-yard loss on 
a reverse. Acting Captain Frank Roz- 
man tosses Smale back two more yards, 
and Smale punts to Tindall on the L. V. 
C. 20, the latter returning to the 34. 
Kress gets away on the longest gain 
from scrimmage of the day, jaunting 31 
yards to the St. Joe 35 on a nice sprint 
off the right side of his own line. A 
third-down pass, Kress to Tindall, is 
for a first down on the foes' 24- 
yard marker as the period ends. 

Lebanon Valley really seems to b« 
rolling and well on the way toward reg- 
istering a touchdown, but as the fourth 
quarter gets under way the Blue and 
White attack bogs down and the St. Joe 
forces take command of the situation is 
their weight advantage and reserve pow- 
er begin to take their toll. Tindall loses 
a yard on the first play of the period, 
then a pass Kress to Tony Rozman is 
incompleted and two other forwards, 
Kress to Tindall and T. Rozman, are 
completed, but for no gain, the Hawks 
taking possession of the oval on their 
own 23-yard line as the Valley advance 
s totally halted. Two St. Joe plays gain 
even yards, and a third-down punt is 
docked by L. V. C, only to have a Val- 

ley man detected off-sides on the play, 
giving the Hawks a first down on the 
35. Smale gallops around his right end 
for another first down on the St. Joe 49. 
At this point a 15-yard holding penalty 
against the Philadelphians halts their 
attack and Lebanon Valley takes over 
on the Blue and White 20-yard line when 
Cole's punt sails into the end zone. One 
pass is incomplete and two running 
plays earn but seven years for L. V. C.,< 
Kress punting to the St. Joe 42 on the 
fourth down. Smale snakes his way into 
L. V. C. territory on the 43 on a neat 
punt return, and the Hawks set sail on 
a scoring drive. Slodysko nails Smale 
tor a nine-yard loss, but a forward from 
Hartman to Smale is completed to the 
L. V. C. 26. From this point Marhefka 
breaks off tackle with about 50 million 
Hawks forming interference before him, 
and when Tindall finally nails him he's 
across the line for the first touchdown 
of the contest. Day's kick for the extra 
point is no good, and the score favors 
St. Joe, 9-0, the outlook being dismal for 
the Flying Dutchmen for the first time 
during the game. Then comes the de- 
luge! Both teams begin playing sloppj 
ball and fumbles and all-around ineffi 
ciently mark the final weird minutes oi 
the action. Fridinger fumbles the kick- 
off, St. Joe recovering, but two plays 
later Slodysko gathers in a Hawk fum- 
ble. Ed Kress makes the last offensive 
gesture of the day for the Flying Dutch- 
men by ripping off a fourteen-yard gain 
for a first down on the Blue and White 
47-yard line, but a pass interception 
gives St. Joe possession of the oval. 
Four plays later Furey fumbles and a 
Valley men covers the ball at the bottom 
of a huge pile-up, and L. V. C. again 
comes into possession of the oval. Tin- 
dall is tossed for a 19-yard loss on & 
weird play, the ball seeming to filter 
through his arms on the pass from cen- 
ter. Tindall then unlooses an aerial toss 
which Harrison, St. Joe center, takes un- 
der surveillance on the L. V. C. 35'. 
Pausing momentarily while his interfer- 
ence forms, the Hawk sets sail to his 

right and crosses the goal line in a nifty- 
bit of in. -eking teamwork by the Phila- 
delphians. McLaughlin's placement kick 
for the extra point is no good, the score 
standing 15 to against the Blue and 
W hite. On the following kickoff, Krei- 
ter takes the ball on the goal line and is 
hit hard on the 25. The ball bounds craz- 
ily into the air and Tony Rozman recov- 
ers it almost in the clear at midfield 
when he too is hit hard and fumbles, St. 
Joe taking possession of the ball on the 
L. V. C. 47. Day dashes to a first down 
against the weary Flying Dutchmen as 
the game ends. 

Consideiing the game from all angles, 
it seems th..t the final score doesn't quite 
register the comparative strength of the 
two teams and the ability to capitalize 
on several sc. ring opportunities loses the 
ball game lor the Flying Dutchmen. 
Bright spots in the picture for L. V. C. 
are the brilliant punting and running of 
Ed Kress, the ball-carrying of Christian 
Walk, and the inspired play of the en- 
tire Lebanon Valley line which is out- 
weighed and outmanned by the Hawks. 
All due credit is due the gridders, and 
the last period mess is unfortunate — 
just one of those times when everything 
happens as it shouldn't and nothing 
seems to function quite right. 

Next Saturday it's Albright the tra- 
ditional foes, and the Flying Dutchmen 
will have to do plenty of flying to turn 
back the snarling Lions, but it most defi- 
nitely can be done. Come on, gridmen, 
the ol' fight in there, snare the Lion,

Ties Opening Contest 


Harrisburg Hockey Club Is 
Deadlocked On Local Field 
As Jagnesak Scores 

In a fast moving game, before a 
crowd of students and alumni, the Leb- 
anon Valley Hockey team fought to a 
draw with the Harrisburg Hockey Club. 
Each team had failed to score when the 
whistle blew at the half. The teams were 
rather evenly matched. Several times 
the ball was taken down the field, but 
the forward lines lacked the push to 
score a goal. Each team displayed bril- 
liant defensive work, but the offensive 
play did not click. 

The second half opened with a goal by 
the Harrisburg Club- Then Ernestine 
Jagnesak, playing a brilliant game at the 
center halfback position, shot a goal 
when the forward line failed to tally. 
Substitutions were made on the Valley 
team, but there was no further score- 
The game ended i-i. 

Last year the Harrisburg Club beat 
L. V. C. 2-1. This year, although the 
Harrisburgers had four new players in 
their lineup, the L. V. girls held them 
to a i -i tie. In the schedule for the re- 
mainder of the season the girls intend to 
garner some winning scores. The sched- 
ule for the season: — 
Nov. 7 — At home — Harrisburg Hockey 


Nov. 17 — Away — Shippensburg. 
Nov. 21 — Susquehanna Hockey Play 

Day. Dickinson. Cedar Crest. 
Nov. 23— Away— Frosh and Sophs at 

Linden Hall. 

Dec. 4 — Home — Moravian. 
The lineup for Saturday's game was :

Phi Lambda Sigma held its weekly 
meeting last Thursday noon, Novem- 
ber 5, the purpose of which was the 
administering of the first degree to 
the new candidates. After all the 
candidates were accepted by the so- 
ciety members present, President 
Kell gave the welcoming address. In. 
his speech President Kell pointed out 
the assets of the society which the 
new members had chosen for their 
fraternal organization on the Leba- 
non Valley campus. The society plans 
in the near future to present a model 
Friday night meeting as a society 
should present it. They will also have 
a meeting planned exclusively by 
their new material. In this group 
should lie many types of talent with 
which the society members will be 
entertained. Plans for the third de- 
gree are in formation, but at present 
the time is still indefinite. It will 
take place, however, before the 
Thanksgiving holidays.

Albright In Grid Final 

"The size of your gift depends on what 
von have left." 

L. W. R. Meet Thursday 

Musical talent was thrown into the 
limelight at the Life Work Recruit 
meeting held on Thursday evening, 
November 5, 1936, at 6-A5 P. M. in 
North Hall Parlor. Mildred Gangwer 
most beautifully vocalized Stanley 
Dickson's Thanks Be to (lad; Ray 
Zimmerman captured the hearts of 
all those present by his capable ren- 
dition of Without « Bong. Near the 
close of the program, a quartet in- 
cluding Daniel Shearer, Carl Ehr- 
hart, John Ness, and Paul Slonaker 
sang Steal Away. 

In the absence of the president. 
Elwood Needy, Daniel Shearer con- 
ducted the meeting. He also spoke 
briefly to the organization on the 
theme, Am I Alive? Audrey Fox led 
the devotions at the beginning of 
the serivce; as secretary, she read 
the minutes of three previous meet- 

After several business items of 
considerable interest to the Life 
Work Recruit members were thor- 
oughly discussed, the closing prayec 
was offered by Louis Straub. 

Chances are about 100 to i that history 
will repeat itself when Albright's Lions 
and the L. V. C. Flying Dutchmen tan 
gle in the annual traditional fuss at 
Reading on Saturday. The chief question 
is : what particular bit of the thirty 
three year history of the L. V .C.-Al- 
bright rivalry will Old Dame Fortune 
choose to have repeated on this parti- 
cular occasion? 

All sorts of tight scores have been 
chalked up in the past by these two 
teams and one of these past final results 
will probably be repeated. If the old 
adage that "history repeats itself" proves 
to be true, L. V. C. will have a 9 to 6 
edge on the Lions in regard to their 
chances of winning. On nine past oc 
casions the Flying Dutchmen have 
proved superior, while the Red and 
White has emerged triumphant on six 
occasions, the annual battle ending in 
deadlocks on two other occasions. 

If the 1919 battle is repeated, L. V. C 
will win by a 48-0 count, while repetition 
of the 193 1 fracas will result in a 19-0 
Albright triumph. Between these ex 
tremes are all manner of intermediate 
scores which may be repeated- In any 
event, the annual fracas should be packed 
with plenty of close and exciting play 
The Lions, a powerful aggregation 
this year, have won four, tied one, and 
lost one in competition to date. F. & M 
beat the Red and White, 7 to 6, in the 
season's opener. Since the Lions have 
defeated West Chester, 7-6, C. C. N. Y. 
31-0, Moravian, 6-0, and Ursinus, 35-0, 
and have tied Western Maryland, 6- 

On the other hand, the Valleyites have 
won three and lost four, and will need a 
victory in the Albright game to finish 
the season all even and turn a mediocre 
season into a highly successful one. 
Furthermore, the gridmen are thinking 
about that extra day of vacation at 
Thanksgiving time which will result 
from a victory over the Albrightians. A 
large crowd of L. V. C. followers is ex- 
pected to accompany the team to Read- 
ing to lend vocal support to the eleven 
in attempting to down their traditional

asking the neophytes one very pertinent

You might recall that last year, in an 
L. V. Stage Column, someone wrote that 
the Geeps (prop-men extraordinary) 
could go out and get an elephant if the 
prop-list of a play called for it. So the 
Geeps are now nonplussed. The Befud- 
dled Boys have located an elephant, but 
they haven't a play that needs one. It's 
a smallish elephant, nevertheless it's an 
elephant. That's the way the boys are 
— always looking for stuff. If you know 
anyone who needs an elephant. . . .

Kalo Show Boat Moves 
To Hummelstown Friday 

Tomorrow night the Kalo Show Boat 
steams into Hummelstown High School 
under the sponsorship of the Hummels- 
town High School Athletic Association. 
Two shows are scheduled for the even- 
ing, with the same cast that so well pre- 
sented the show here last Friday and 
Saturday nights. 

In order to round out the program 
of the evening in an auditorium where 
no pipe organ is available, the ever 
popular xylophone numbers of Emily 
Kindt and the tunes of the trio of Anna 
Morrison, June Krum, and Evelyn Frid- 
inger will be presented. 

The entire cast is performing for both 
shows and all scenery and equipment 
used here on the campus will be set up 
at the school by Alfred Saylor and his 
property men. Saylor has been responsi 
ble for the creation, construction and 
erection of the scenery and setting for 
the Minstrels, and has most capably 
handled his work. 

Kalo wishes to thank every member 
of the society who contributed in any 
manner to the success of the perform- 
ances on the nights of the Homecoming 
Week-end, and especially thanks all 
students fcr their support as shown by 
their patronage at the shows. 

The next out of town performance 
will be at Pottstown December 4.

Senate Scholastic Plan 
Effective Immediately 


Four Dormitories And Day 
Students Vie For Honors; 
Results To Be Published 

The plan of the Men's Senate for rais- 
ing the scholastic standards of Lebanon 
Valley College students which was earl- 
ier proposed, and noted in a recent edi- 
tion of the La Vie will go into effect 
'mmediately, now that the mid-semester 
grade period has ended. The four dormi- 
tories, North Hall, West Hall, South 
Hall, and the Men's dormitory, together 
vith the day students will constitute the 
"ve competing groups who will vie with 
each other in maintaining the highest 
average of scholarship. 

Directly upon the completion of each 
succeeding grade period, a senate com- 
nittee headed by Francis W. MacMul- 
1 en in conjunction with Dean Gasteiger 
ind John Marberger will secure the 
Trades from the Registrar and calculate 
'he average of each group. These five 
averages will then be posted publicly 
in the expectation that the publicity will 
encourage each group to do its best. 

As a further aid to this plan, stud- 
nts who h<ive difficulty in various sub- 
jects will be given the opportunity of 
•eceiving help during study hours. Cer- 
tain persons who are proficient in these 
ubjects will be designated by the Men's 
Senate in each of the dormitories and 
imong the day students to whom the 
:>ther students may turn for assistance 
n any difficulties that may arise in that 
^articular subject. These persons will be 
/ery glad to render any service that they 
are capable of. 

It is also quite probable that De- 
partmental Honorary Fraternities will 
be established by the faculty. Admission 
:o these fraternities will be available 
only to those students who maintain an 
average of ninety percent or better in 
these departments. In view of this they 
will be honorary fraternities indeed. 

This plan of the Men's Senate has re- 
■eived the whole-hearted support of the 
faculty and many of the students who 
see in it a fine instrument for stimulat- 
ing scholastic efTort, which, in the last 
malysis, is the true aim of a college. It 
is hoped that the entire student body 
will enter enthusiastically into the com- 
petition and put forth their best efforts. 

Wilts Genial Hosts To 

Life Work Recruits 

The Life Wok Remits were the 
guests of Dr. and Mrs. Wilt in their 
home Tuesday evening. After the discus- 
sion of topics of inlerest, attention was 
turned to games and laughter. As the 
evening progre sed, refreshments were 
served. A round table conference was 
conducted in wlii h various problems of 
interest to the organization were dis- 
cussed and brought to li lit. As the 
meeting drew to a close, and as the 
members dispersed, President Needy ex- j 
pressed the feeling of the group in an 
address of app eci tion to Dr. and Mrs. 
Wilt for their kind hospitality. 

Rags At A Premium; 
Poverty Dance Friday 

Tomorrow night at 8 o'clock the Y. M. 
and Y. W. C. A. will jointly entertain 
the student body at a Poverty Dance 
which will be held in the gymnasium. 
This is a new type of dance on this 
campus, and it will surely make everyone 
feel at home. 

In keeping with the idea of poverty 
there will be no admission charge, how- 
ever the committee promises that they 
shall strictly observe the rule that to 
onter the gymnasium tomorrow night 
••tudents must look poverty-stricken. In 
.plte of those greenbacks and checks 
which line pockets, for this one night you 
must appear sans argent. Girls, if you 
lon't want to look overdressed, wear 
lothing better than a sweater and skirt. 
r he older and more patched the outfit, 
he more appropriate. Now — or rather 
tomorrow — is the time to get out your 
'old duds" and show them off. 

Karl Bowers' orchestra will furnish 
music for those who wish to dance, while 
the rest of the guests may play the 
Tames which will be provided for their

Wallace Gives Address 
To Historical Groups 

Conrad Weiser Theme ; Shenk 
Also Present At Two-Day 

Dr. Wallace on Friday evening, Nov- 
ember 13, delivered an illuminating ad- 
dress on "Conrad Weiser and the Dela- 
ware Indians" before an audience in- 
terested in the history of the state of 

The occasion was a meeting of two 
historical groups, the Pennsylvania Fed- 
eration of Historical Societies and the 
Pennsylvania Historical Association, at 
their two-day joint-session in Reading, 
on November 13 and 14. The function 
at which Dr. Wallace read the above 
paper was a dinner meeting of the so- 
cieties at the Hotel Abraham Lincoln. 

The speaker's purpose was to bring 
about a better understanding of that re- 
markable character, important in the his- 
tory of not only our commonwealth, 
but also our nation, Conrad Weiser. 

Weiser was a gentleman of catholic in- 
terests and diverse occupations. He was 
not only a pioneer, but also a monk, a 
linguist, a successful farmer, a judge, a 
hymn writer, a county ranger, a store- 
keeper, to mention only a few. He was 
active in religious circles, a supporter 
of missions, a pillar of the Moravian 
Church, and of the German Baptist, Re- 
formed, and Lutheran as well. He was 
the first judge of Berks County and one 
of the founders of the city of Reading,

Delightful Three-Act Play 
Presented By Wig And Buckle 


Dean Aungst, Karl Fiocken, and Mary Zartman Seen As 
Stars; Supporting Cast Efficient; Large Crowd Attends; 
Dr. Struble Directs Amusing Production 



On Thursday evening, November 12, the Wig and Buckle Club of Lebanon 
Valley College staged their second major production when the members presented 
A. A. Milne's play, "The Truth About Blayds," to a full house in Engle Hall. 

"The Truth About Blayds" was given on the same stage in May, 1929, when 
it was presented by the graduating class under the student-coach, Henry R. Aungst, 
an older brother of Dean Aungst of this year's production. 

The play is quite amusing, but the author helps neither the actors nor the 
audience to determine whether it is a tragedy, farce, or tragedy- farce. At one 
moment it seems pure comedy, while at another it develops elements of real 
tragedy. Despite this handicap the actors acquitted themselves well, and gave a 

most delightful performance. 

To Dean Aungst, Karl Fiocken, and 
Miss Mary Zartman must be accorded 
the highest, honors. Miss Zartman pos- 
sesses a good clear voice, beautiful enun- 
ciation, and real acting ability. If at 
times she seemed somewhat melodrama- 
tic, one must blame the author for lines 
which "date" the play badly. 

Mr. Fiocken played his comedy part 
with great skill, exhibiting real restraint. 
Hh actions were very convincing and 

Mr. Dean Aungst's was the outstand- 
ing performance, for naturalness, sin- 
cerity, and simplicity. Every gesture, 
'one, and expression seemed just the in- 
evitable one, and we look forward to 
seeing him carry on the Aungst tradi- 
tion on our stage. 

These three stars were very ably sup- 
oorted by those taking the minor parts. 
Miss Dorothy Kreamer helped the au- 
dience greatly to understand the play, for 
her moods were so clearly shown and 
helped to set the tone of each act. 

Blayds himself was well played by 
Mr. Robert Tschop, who maintained a 
very consistent character study. It is 
not easy to keep one voice and one 
tone and one tempo during long speeches. 

Miss Jean McKeag had such a small 
part that one felt she was almost wasted. 
Her companion in revolt against the 
overwhelming Blayds was played with 
energy by Mr. William Clark. His quite 
incredible English accent made it diffi- 
cult for his listeners to understand his 
speeches, and when he turned his back 
on the audience it was impossible to 
hear what he was trying to say. 

We hope that Miss Louise Saylor may 
have a somewhat more important part 
soon, for she was an almost silent mem- 
ber of this cast. 

Very much credit must be given to 
Mr. Harold Phillips for the splendid 
make-up. Miss Kreamer in particular 
was an excellent piece of work : the 
peaceful woman in the first act ; the hag- 
gard, grief-stricken one of the second ; 
and the relieved, joyous one of the third

The mail's Senate meeting on last 
Tuesday night was fraught with much 
business of a varied nature. It was a 
regular weekly session, held, as usual, in 
the "Y" room of the mens' dormitory. 
The first act of the senate was to sum- 
mon all the male dorm students of the 
freshman class, for the purpose of pre- 
senting to the delinquent ones the de- 
plorable condition with reference to the 
mid-semester marks. These persons were 
exhorted to "snap out of it," and urged 
to confer with the student assistants in 
the departments which caused them the 
trouble. They were advised further to 
take upper classmen into their confidence 
and ask them for help. 

A number of cases were tried and dis- 
posed of, with those being found guilty 
receiving disciplinary action. It was 
voted to contribute a sum of $35.00 to

No. 13 


We have just passed through the period known as "mid-semesters". Not far 
in the future are "semesters". Each period of exams confronts us with the same 
problem — deliberate copying. It is a problem that is of great concern to both 
faculty and students. It cannot be solved by any methods of policing that may be 
developed. The change must come from within the student body. 

Other schools have met this problem by the use of the honor system. In this 
plan the entire responsibility is placed on the student body. Each member is 
pledged to refrain from copying, and to report any misconduct that he sees. All 
students understand the nature of the result of non-conformity to this system. 
The punishment is uniform and immediate. 

Perhaps the installation of some such system would solve the problem at 
L. V. C. We cannot expect this plan to develop from its own strength. It must 
be consciously sponsored by some group. Also, the result of non-conformity must 
be without discrimination. 

We publicly wish to thank the members of the band and football team for 
their unfaltering and unwavering exhibition of school spirit throughout the entire 
season- Also, our wish for a speedy recovery to the football players who were 
injured in Saturday's game.

the building operations having been 
placed under his care. 

Much of the great service that he per- 
formed has been misinterpreted. Re- 
sponsibility for the war with the Dela- 
ware Indians has been laid on him, and 
he has also been charged with lack of 
consideration for the rights of Pennsyl- 
vania, whose welfare he is said, by some, 
to have sacrificed in behalf of that of 
the nation. Dr. Wallace gave evidences 
to prove the fallacy of these notions, 
showing that, far from being careless 
of the rights of the Delaware Indians or 
of Pennsylvania, he did his best to try 
to preserve their well-being, and very 
nearly averted the Delaware War. 

His influence with the Six Nations, 
whom he held loyal to the English cause 
for a time after the other Indian tribes 
had given their aid to the opposition, 
hastened by a great deal the completion 

of the French and Indian War. Rank- 
ing next to Franklin in importance, he 
is a character of whom we as Pennsyl- 
vanians and as Americans should be 

The audience showed its appreciation 
of Dr. Wallace's address with very fav- 
orable comment, recognizing the import- 
ance of its contribution to the history o 
that period. 

Dr. Shenk also was present at the ses- 
sion, and attended a meeting of the coun- 
cil of the Pennsylvania Historical As- 
sociation, of which he is a member. 


Dr. Shenk addressed the Lancaster 
County Historical Society on Saturday.

Hummelstown Audience 
Cheers Show Boat 

The Kalo Show Boat presented two 
shows to a full house in the Hummels- 
town High School auditorium last Fri- 
day night. Many alumni and friends of 
the society were present at the perform- 
ance and had only words of praise for 
the show. The end men, with Byerly 
replacing Leech, used many new jokes 
and Emily Kindt and the trio of Frid- 
inger, Morrison, and Krum replaced the 
Fiddlers Three and the organ numbers 
which appeared in the campus presenta- 

Alfred Saylor was responsible for the 
splendid stage set-up, the same as used 
here in the local show, and considerable 
credit is due Mr. Saylor for his very cap- 
able handling of all properties and his 
clever lighting arrangements. 

Transportation for the cast and equip- 
ment was supplied by members of the 
society, Dr. Derickson, and the Pennway 

The next presentation of the show 
boat will be in the Y. M. C. A. at Potts- 
town on December 4.

act, were very cleverly emphasized. 

Praise must also be given to Miss 
Ella Mason and Miss Agnes Morris as 
costumers for the play. Mr. William 
Blayds-Conway was a masterpiece, and 
his wife's costumes helped to set the 
atmosphere for each act. The stage set 
was delightful. To the other behind-the- 
scene workers — Edward Schmidt, light- 
ing; Allan Rutherford, properties; and 
Richard Baus, publicity — much praise is 
due for a most enjoyable production. 

Nor must we forget Dr. Struble, for 
without his very capable coaching and 
untiring encouragement the play could 
not have been such a success. Dr. Stru- 
ble has accustomed L. V. C. to look for- 
ward to something that will be enter- 
taining and worthwhile to see. 


Last Wednesday evening at seven 
o'clock in Phllo Hall the annual Philo- 
kosmian third dagr e was administered 
to a group of thirty-five avid candi- 
dates. It is needless to say that as the 
evening progressed they became less en- 
thusiastic, but sti 1 fh -w d that they re- 
aized whit the true Philo spirit de- 
manded of them. Many of them remem- 
bered that tradition is a prominent fea- 
ture in all phases of Lebanon Valley 
campus life. Phi Lampda Sigma was no 
excep'i n. The administering of this fa- 
mous third degree was in the hands of a 
prominent Junior member, Walter Ehr- 
hart. He is to be congratu'ated on the 
fine way in which the entire work of 
the evening progressed. After the en- 
tire group had felt the warm influence 
of the Philo welcoming spirit, refresh- 
ments were served. Even the candidates, 
although in a weakened condition, ao- 
c aimed the evening a success. They has- 
tened to say, however, that they were 
g'ad that it was finished. After the holi- 
days the group of new members are 
planning a novel evening's entertainment 
for old members and faculty.

Blue And White Bows 
Before Strong Lions 


D'.ck Riffle Stars As Red And 
White Defeats Fighting 
Flying Dutchmen 

Completely outplayed, but never out- 
ought, Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutch- 
men bowed before the powerhouse at- 
ack of Albright's Lions Saturday in the 
:ighteenth renewal of the ancient grid 
cud with the Red and White on the 
long end of a 26-7 count after sixty 
ninutes of gruelling football. 

It was Dick Riffle, aptly baptised the 
Zorning Exprers, who was the chief 
reason for the downfall of the Blue and 
White. This highly-touted Albright back 
lived up to the highest expectations of 
the Red and White rooters and even 
exceeded the sterling all-around per- 
formance he gave on the local athletic 
leld last year when he inspired the Lions 
to a 1 0-0 victory over L. V. C. This year 
Riffle personally accounted for three of 
the Albright touchdowns and heaved a 
>ass to Muller for the other Lion score. 

Albright scored nineteen points in the 
second period to assume a lead which 
they never relinquished. Adding another 
touchdown in the third, the Lions en- 
tered the final session with a 26-point 
advantage. The Flying Dutchmen, re- 
fusing to be counted out, fought right 
on to the final whistle and succeeded in 
outplaying their foes in the last period, 
picking up seven points to prevent a 
hutout defeat. 

With a wealth of reserve material on 
hand, Coach Clarence L. Munn started 
a second-string lineup against the Flying 
Dutchmen. This outfit played the Blue 
and White gridders on even terms dur- 
ing the early moments of the game and 
secured the first scoring opportunity of 
the game when they penerated deep into 
Lebanon Valley territory. The advance 
was halted short of a score when Joe 
Cody's placement kick attempt for a 

extra . coring pu ch at the right time 
may have supplied the impetus to in- 
sure L. V. C. on to viclory, and, in any 
eve t, fo lowers of the Blue and Whit, 
need not fed ashamed of the showing of 
their favorites on the gridiron this year 

field goal from the 25-yard line fell short 
of the uprights. 

Going into action with the score dead- 
locked, the varsity Lion gridmen, with 
Riffle leading the way, soon opened up 
an attack which netted them three touch- 
downs in the second period. Tony 
Troisi, the side-stepping Albright safety 
man, started the Lions on the way by 
returning one of Kress' punts twenty 
yards to the L. V. C. 25-yard line. Riffle 
hit the line for four yards on the first 
play from scrimmage and then skirted 
end for a first down on the 14-yard line. 
Riffle and DeLorenzo placed the oval on 

he two-yard mark, and from that point 
Riffle tore through the line for the first 
score of the game. DeLorenzo's place- 
ment attempt for the extra point was 
wide. Score: Albright, 6; L. V. C. 0. 

Lebanon Valley received the next kick- 
)ff, and the Flying Dutchmen were 
forced to punt, Kress booting to the 
Albright 10. Troisi returned to the 20 
before being brought down by Belmer. 
Riffle first-downed on the Red and White 
32, and three more plays advanced the 
Lions to their own 43-yard line. Riffle 

licked up two yards on the next play, 
md followed with the outstanding indi- 
/idual performance of the game. Break- 
ing through the line, the Corning Ex- 
press cut quickly to his left and out- 

aced the Lebanon Valley secondary in 
1 55-yard jaunt for his second touch- 
iown of the day. Cody was sent into 

he game and successfuly converted the 
try for point. Score: Albright, 13; 
L. V. C. o. 
It was not long before the Lions 

truck again, with Riffle again in the 
limelight as the Lions went out in front 
by nineteen points. Muller intercepted 
a Lebanon Valley forward on his own 
36-yard line soon after the Dutchmen 
had received the kickoff. Riffle dropped 
back into a fake kick formation and 
heaved an aerial which Muller snared 
it midfield. The latter managed to side- 
step Kress, Valley safety man, and raced 

the remaining distance for the third Al- 
bright score. Cody's kick for point was 
wide, and the score stood 19 to at half- 

The Albrightians continued to have 
entire control of the situation during 
the third quarter and registered their 
final points as the result of a 63-yard 
drive. Taking the ball on their own 37- 
rard line following another punt run- 
^ack by Troisi, the Lions set sail in full 
wing and were never stopped until thev 
lad increa-ed their advantage to 26 to 
A pass, Riffle to Troisi and the ball- 
arrying of the brilliant Riffle featurec 
his final touchdown jaunt of the Lions, 
.vhich ended with the Corning Express 
taking a lateral from Troisi and goine 
four yards for his third score of the day 
Chaborda added the extra point when he 
kirted end on a fake placement kick 
~>rmation. Score: Albright, 26; L. \ 
C. a 

The Flying Dutchmen, who refusei 
to toss in the sponge despite the Lions' 
advantage, made two long drives in th 
final period and registered one touch- 
down near the end of the game to pre- 
vent a shutout. The first drive carried 
for 49 yards before it was stopped, witn 
the ball on the Albright six-yard line. 
Aerials from Kress to Raymie Frey, 
Tony Rozman, and Johnny Friel were 
the main offensive weapons in this drive, 
but the Lions held in the shadow of their 
goal-posts, an attempted lateral on 

fourth down being solved by the Al- 
bright defenders. About five minutes 
later the Flying Dutchmen gained pos- 
session of the oval on the Albright 37- 
yard marker when the Lion:, failed to 
make a first down at that point. Kress 
made six yards on a line play and then 
got loose when the receivers were cov- 
ered on a pass play, the speedy half- 
back being brought down on the Lion 
14-yard line after registering a first 
down. Friel and Kress then hit the 
line for a first down on the Red and 
White two-yard line, and Kress went 
over for the Lebanon Valley touchdown. 
Johnny Friel added the extra point from 
placement to bring the score to 26-7, the 
final figures.

Night Observed By Club 

Pennsylvania-German Night, observed 
by Der Deutsche Verein, was heartily 
enjoyed by a number of enthusiastic 
students of the language and their guests, 
five members of the Myerstown Wom- 
an's Club. 

The ladies provided genuine entertain- 
ment for the collegians by singing a 
dozen spirited songs in the local dialect, 
in exchange or which Doktor Lietzau's 
students amused the visiting company. 
Calvin Spitler led the group in singing 
"Schnitzelbank," pointing with a folded 
music stand to the drawings of Messer- 
schmidt on a blackboard ; Robert Long 
read jokes from the New York Staats- 
Zcitung und Herald; and Singing-master 
Spitler read a history of the Pennsyl- 
vania Germans in dialect. 

After Kaffeeklatsch, the students and 
guests planned a Pennsylvania-German 
dramatic troupe. 

L. V. Stage 

For the last two years, the themes of 
the college plays seeemd to have been 
insanity, but this year the flare seems 
to be for th.2 lives and works of poets. 
The Wig and Buckle's production, "The 
Truth About Blayds," was written of 
the poet Blayds or, more technically 
speaking, Jenkins. The Junior Play, 
"Alison's House," is built around the 1 
life and works of one Alison Stanhope. 
Historically, the play was written about 
Emily Dickinson, called Alison in the 
play. She has been dead eighteen years 
a-.d her survivors learn for the first "the 
truth about Alison" as the play pro-

Director Robert Spihi started a sys-

Wal'ace and supported by Dr. Bailey. 
Rehearsals have been arrang-d to drill 
for two weeks on one act particularly 
with intermediate repet'tions of the oth- 
er two acts. The schedu'e was arranged 
so that, while concentrating on each act 
the cast would have the benefit of th" 
time between for learning the lines more 
thoroughly. Psychologically, this plan 
should result in added surety between 
the actors and the lines.

The cast for the Junior Play had been 
in the minds of a number of our col- 
leagues rather dubious as to ability. Half 
of the characters had not appeared in 
former coTere performances, and, until 
the last two practices, had not "felt their 
parts," however, since these rehearsals 
there can be no doubt as to ability that, 
the play, "Alhon's House," will be an 
excel'ent produc'ion. We recommend the

performance from Carolyn Roberts, 
Charlie Raab, and Barbara Sloane.

Juniors Enact Play 
Friday, December 11 


"Alison's House" Being Pre- 
nared For Presentation ; 
Robert Spohn, Alumnus, 

"Lavender and old lace" is the phrase 

ych most suitably suggests the type 
ttf play to be given for the benefit of the 
Junior class on Friday, December 11. 
Clitoris House, as you probably know, 
reveals some of the facts about the life 
of Emily Dickinson (Alison Stanhope in 
the play)> a famous American poetess 
f the latter part of the last century, 
whose reputation was not gained until 
after her death, when the products of 
her secluded New England life began to 
be published for the first time. The cur 
tain parts to disclose a scene in Alison's 
house eighteen years after she has died, 
leaving many mysteries to be solved. 

The elegance and charm that charac- 
terized the period at the turn of the 
century, when this play occurs, are re- 
captured in mood and manner. We may 
expect to see modern maidens converted, 
under the magic wand of Lena Risser, 
into ladies of lovelines, picturesque in 
long dresses with a bit of a bustle, and 
feminine in coiffure. The men's costumes, 
which also will be in keeping with the 
period, have been ordered from Van 
Horn's of Philadelphia. 

The costuming shall not be wasted 
against a barren background if it can be 
avoided. Something better than passing 
in the way of setting will be seen if the 
plans of Director Robert Spohn, assist- 
ed by Carl Conrad, of Lebanon, who 
has had experience in designing, mate- 
lialize. Roger Saylor will help with the 
staging. Skillful make-up and lighting

Sponsor Joint Vespers 

The Christian Associations have held 
the first of what is intended to be a 
series of occasional joint vesper services. 
On the last Sunday evening before the 
Thanksgiving recess the two "Y" so- 
cieties met together in the conservatory 
auditorium to participate in a program 
of general student devotions. Helen 
Netherwood, to whom the organization 
of the service had been assigned, as- 
sumed general charge of the meeting. 
She announced the hymns to be sung, 
read an appropriate portion of Scrip- 
ture, led in a general prayer, and pre- 
sented Dr. Black, who delivered a short 
but impressive address on the subject 
"Taking a Dare." In the course of his 
discourse the speaker pointed out that 
it requires more courage to stand firm on 
moral issues than it does to do wrong 
at the behest of those who "dare" a 
person. • ' 

Court Squad Includes 
11 Veteran Performers 

Six Varsity and Five Former 
Frosh Cage Stars Return To 

Six varsity letter men and five mem- 
bers of last year's sensational undefeated 
freshman quintet were included among 
those who answered the athletic de- 
partment's call for basketball candi- 
dates last night. 

The varsity letter men included such 
able performers as the Billett brothers, 
John Speg, Clair Snell, Clarence Aungst, 
and Hal Kroske, and the sophomores 
now eligible for varsity play included 
Ed Kress, Tony Rozman, Raymie Frey, 
Bob Brown, and Frank Poloniak. 

Paul Billett, the Blue and White's 
leading scorer during last year's some- 
what dismal campaign, Ralph Billett, 
and Ed Kress saw service last year at 
forward posts. Clair Snell was used at 
each of the three positions, as was Frank 
Poloniak. Frey, who averaged sixteen 
points per game as the leader of the 
frosh quintet last season, saw service at 
either the forward or pivot positions, 
while Clarence Aungst performed at 
center for the varsity and showed vast 
improvement in the closing games of the 
campaign. Speg, Kroske, Rozman, and 
Brown served as back-court guardians 
last season.

I. R. C. Delegation To 
Leave For Delaware 


To Represent Local Club 
At Middle Atlantic States 

At an I. R. C. meeting last night at the 
home of Dr. Stevenson. Theresa Stefan 
discussed the "Conflict between Liberty 
and Equality in National Governments." 
She showed that all through history 
there has been perpetual strife between 
the concepts of liberty and equality of 
man in the state. Sometimes the former 
has overbalanced the latter, as was the 
case in the United States in the days of 
uncontrolled trusts. Sometimes the lat- 
ter has predominated, as appears to be 
the case in the Communistic State, Rus- 
sia. The discussion was related to pres- 
ent day tendencies, with many contend- 
ing that we are approaching the equality 
conception with subsequent loss of in- 
itiative and enterprise. Others main- 
tained that corporations and individuals 
have had too much liberty with con- 
sequent harm to society. All, however, 
agreed that some balance between the 
two should be affected. Thomas Guini- 
van closed the meeting with a short 
talk on current events. 

During a brief business session it 
was announced that four new members 
had been elected to the Cabinet. They 
are Elizabeth Bender, William Clark, 
Jack Moller, and Charles Raab. The 
Cabinet also chose Charles Kinney, Cal- 
vin Spitler, and William Clark to rep- 
resent the Club at the annual I. R. C. 
regional conference at the University of 
Delaware, Newark, Delaware, December 
4 and 5. These delegates, with Dr. Stev- 
enson, will take an active part in the 
meeting. Calvin Spitler will conduct a

Frosh Defeat Sophs On Gridiron 

Evidently not satisfied with immersing 
the Sophs in the cold, muddy water ot 
the Quittapahilla a few weeks ago, those 
irrepressible Frosh humiliated their up- 
per classmen further by squelching them 
in a hotly-contested football game on 
the Saturday prior to the thanksgiving 
vacation. After sixty minutes of furious 
combat, interspersed with humorous in- 
cidents and a generous portion of thrills, 
the first-year men emerged victorious by 
the narrow margin of a single point, the 
score reading 7-6. 

In the second quarter the Sophs made 
the first score of the game, taking the 

ball on their own 35 yard line and, large 
ly through the playing of Howard Baier, 
making a sustained drive to the Froshs' 
10 yard line, from which "Bud" Umber- 
ger scored on a pass from Clyde Raezer 
Then, with Raezer, standing as cool as a 
popsicle, ready to boot the all-important 
extra point, the ball was propelled far 
above his head, and the opportunity 
.vas lost. 

This lead was succe sfully defended 
until late in the third period, when the 
Frosh took possession of the ball on the 
Sophs' 40 yard line. O.i the first play

Green Blotter Meets; 
Adopts Constitution 

La Vie Supplement Planned 
For Near Future; Richies 
Hosts To Club 

At a meeting held Thursday, Novem- 
ber 19 at the home of Dr. Richie, the 
Green Blotter finally broke its tradition 
of absolute informality by adopting a 

They were moved to make this in- 
novation, say the campus literati, by the 
imminent danger that the customs on 
which the actions of the writers' or- 
ganization had been previously based 
might become lost in the process of in- 
fusing new blood into the club. It is 
anticipated by the Ink Spots that the 
code which they have adopted will pre- 
vent any such occurrence, since they 
have included therein all the original 
principles, and in addition, several new 
ones, including more flexible regulations 
for the admittance of new members. It 
was formerly the practice to admit no 
more than two students of each sex from 
each class, thus providing, in theory, for 
a total membership consisting of eight 
men and eight women. The ruling has 
now been modified, so that any number 
of students may be admitted from any 
class or either sex so long as the mem- 
bership does not exceed eight members 
of each sex. This provision was made 
necessary by the uneven distribution of 
literary talent now prevalent in the col- 

After the constitution had been duly 
ratified, the Ink Spots proceeded to the 
less cerebral, if more enjoyable busi- 
ness of showing off their latest brain 
storms, which ranged in kind from a 
very erudite dissertation on humanism 
by Clifford Barnhardt to some charm- 
ingly light verses on the technique of 
kissing by a newly admitted member, 
Mary Touchstone. Miss Touchstone has 
a felicity of style and lucidity of ex- 
pression that may well make hers a very 
significant name in a few years.

West Hall Women 
Get Highest Grades

Men's Dormitory 77.8 


After several days of calculating, the 
scholarship committee of the Men's Sen- 
ate has compiled the above statistics. 
They represent the grades of achieve- 
ment of the six competing groups. These 
statistics do not represent the actual 
averages because the task of compiling 
the averages as the office will eventually 
calculate them would have taken too 
long. In consultation with the registrar, 
he expressed the opinion that the correct 
averages would be somewhat lower than 
indicated above, but on the whole the 
differences between the six groups rep- 
resented would not be great enough to 
affect their relative positions. So the 
positions as indicated are quite accurate 
enough for comparison. 

A rather wide difference is noted be- 
tween the first two groups, and a similar 
difference of approximately three per 
cent exists between the last two. It is 
certain, therefore, that a radical advance 
in grades must take place if West Hall 
is to lose the top position, and the 
Men's Dormitory to move out of the 

There are some points, however, that 
the statistics do not show, but which, in 
the spirit of the undertaking should be 
brought out. The first of these is the 
extremely poor level of averages of the 
freshman class. The freshman students 
in the Men's Dormitory barely mustered 
a mere 73 per cent, while those among 
the day students came through with an 
average only three percent better. These 
people were largely instrumental in pull- 
ing down the averages of their re- 
spective groups. It must also be noted 
that both these figures fall comparatively

No. 14 


Everyone who has followed with even casual interest the disturbing unrest 
among occupants of the Men's Dormitory is aware of the "Committee of Five." In 
brief, this committee is a group popularly accepted at the now famous p re-holiday 
midnight meeting of L. V. males resident in the dorm, whose avowed purpose is to 
bring to the attention of the faculty those "grievances" of the students accumu- 
lated for some time past. 

The principal contentions of the committee are that there is not sufficient lib- 
erty for the students, that there is excessive faculty dictation of student activities, 
that the Men's Senate is not functioning properly as a vehicle of student opinion. 
These contentions are supported by items from recent L. V. C. history, but on the 
whole they do not present the conclusive picture of faculty tyranny which the 
"Committee of Five" would like to depict. 

It is true that the Senate has not endeavored "by all means at its command to 
inculcate in the student body the proper respect for the rights of others," as wit 
ness the tabling of the conservatory-chapel program matter. Other shortcomings 
could be cited; however, our Senate has some creditable achievements to its ac- 
count and, on the whole, functions as well as, if not better than similar organiza- 
tions in other small colleges. 

But all this really is beside the point. The reason that La Vie cannot give its 
support to the "Committee of Five" is that there already is an agency, the Student- 
Faculty Council, whose stated aims are exactly those advanced by the newly-formed 
dormitory committee as reasons for existence. The "Committee of Five*' is not the 
first group to arise spontaneously from the ranks of the student body. There is no 
reason to believe that it will not suffer the fate of its predecessors, that is, plenty 
of support from the students at the outset, but desertion when a showdown is im- 

So our inclination is to ascribe the genesis of the protesting committee to that 
peculiar (and rather harmless) restlessness prevalent on every campus just prior 
to a vacation period. La Vie does not think there are sufficient abuses of student 
rights to justify the dramatic denouement we have just witnessed, and venture? 
to predict that the zeal of the principals will flourish in inverse ratio to the lapse 
of time. 

We should not discount entirely the significance of the "Committee of FiveJ' 
and it is not wise to dismiss such surface rumblings of discontent without a thought 
to basic conditions. Let the Men's Senate and Student-Faculty Council examine 
their own actions critically, and adapt their future program so as to deliver us 
from this plethora of protesting "representative committees."

Editor's Note: — The alitor believes 
that certain questions under discussion 
behind curtains and closed doors which, 
up to this time, have been more or less 
ignored in print, should be made known. 
To this end La Vie decided to get 
FACTS. Facts can be secured only when 
truth is uncovered and truth can be un- 
covered only when you go to the source 
of information. These facts were secured 
and are printed below. Under no condi- 
tion will La Vie allow rumor to displace 
facts and truth in this paper. 

The following article was prepared 
after two La Vie reporters interviewed 
Dr. Lynch and Prof. Rutledge. 

Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, college president, 
revealed the facts regarding many of 
the recent student-faculty misunder- 
standings in a lengthy interview with 
two La Vie Coixegienne reporters this 

The most revealing of all these perti- 
nent facts were those concerning the 
true case of the indefinite suspension of 
one of our prominent football men sev- 
eral weeks ago. A history of this much 
discussed case would seem to include 
certain facts which tend to brand the 
great ado among students over the mat 
ter as a rather prejudiced attitude which 
condemns and casts doubts upon the 
final decision without first attempting to> 
probe deeply into the facts. These facts, 
stated briefly, are as follows: At the 
beginning of the current year, this grid- 
man was ineligible because he had not 
taken his examination at the close of 
the second semester last year. However, 
through a special concession of the fac- 
ulty, he was permitted to take the ex- 
ams, even after he had neglected to take 
the scheduled re-exams at the opening 
of the school term this year. After schoo: 
had been in session for a week, the re- 
gistrar, in checking his records, discov 
ered that he had not been registered as 
a student nor as much as attended any 
classes during this opening week, so that 
technically L. V. C. might have entered 
the Kutztown game with a player wh > 
w fi s not even a student of the college. 
Indeed, an oversight on the part of the 
office assistants was the only thing that 
enap.ed him to play at all, for he ha . 
not passed 60 per cent of the required 
number of hours for the preceding year. 
So much for his ineligibility. This par 
ticular player had to be kept on the 
bench for several games because he ad- 
mittedly broke training. This situation 
became more and more intolerable unti 
a verbal tiff between coach and player 
in which player reprimanded coach cre- 
ated an utterly impossible situation. The 
player, knowing his fate, turned in hi 
suit without waiting to face disciplinary 
measures. Faculty action necessarily fol- 
lowed, and after due consideration i 
was decided that since this man dis 
played such an evident uncooperative at 
titude, ranked low scholastic-ally, ye1 
nevertheless received the most help from 
the college, it was best for him and bes' 
for the school to suspend him. Undesir- 
ables, no matter what their appeal maj 
be, should not lie made heroes — the col 
lege and everything it represents should 
precede personal affection. 

Another of the important matters dis- 
cussed in the interview was the question 
of student government which seems I > 
be particularly vital on our campus i\' 
this time. A considerable amount of ru- 
mor concerning the functions of our 
Men's Senate is in evidence at present. 
The feeling among the students is thai 
they have no self-government and aTe 
much chastised. This evidences itself 
through our somewhat inane campus agi 
tators who for the most part arc gross!) 
misinformed. Student government is de- 
pendent for success upon one thing only 
— the cooperation of the students. An 
honor system cannot work unless each in- 
dividual takes upon himself a feeling of 
personal responsibility and personal dis- 

cipline. If each student would only real- 
ize how free our rules actually are an. I 
would think the matter over carefully, 
he could come to no other conclusion 
than that carping and fault-finding on'y 
make matters worse. When student gov- 
ernment fails, faculty gov rnment must 
step in. This campus needs more sanity, 
more broad-mindedness, more adult 
thinking, and a great deal less of the 
pseudo-sophistication, childish whimper- 
ings, and destructive criticisms that are 
unfortunately seeming to become the 

A striking example of this attitude has 
resulted in the suspension of Friday 
morning musical programs in the cha- 
pel. Hecklers with a desire to attract 
attention and be admired by their equal- 
ly lame-brained friends have for a long 
time annoyed the artists appearing in 
these programs. Considerable time i 
given by these performers for prepara- 
tion, and to be received by a razzin 
mob is entirely unpleasant. Consequent- 
ly the students of the Conservatory havs 
refused to participate in these programs, 
and Prof. Rutledge says, "We will not 
send anybody out there to be ridiculed 
by an unappreciative audience." And 
college students are supposed to be ac- 
quiring culture! This situation had been 
dragging on for some time, but instead 
of popular opinion motivating the stu- 
dent government bodies to sLp in and 
ostracize or rebuke the offenders, the 
situation was permitted to remain uncle 
sirable — until p rformers and faculty 
had to take the affair into their own 
hands and suspend further programs. 

The whole matter may be explained by 
the leniency we students receive. In spite 
of continual cries of faculty tyranny, 
conditions really seem to be lax. Stu- 
dent-faculty relations are reputedly 
strained because the student body feels 
that the faculty exercis s undue restric- 
tions. Carefully considering the matter, 
however, we find that this is an entirely 
erroneous attack. What other college 
allows its female students to daLe every 
day of the week — morning, afternoon and 
night? There may be some, but they are 
few and far betwe-n. This is merely one 
instance of the general leniency which 
does exist. Restrictions are designed for 
the best interests of the student and 
school and are not especial'y planned t , 
create a cage for erring ch'ldren. Too 
great laxity of government can have few 
good results and is bound to reap many 
poor ones. A school that is reputedh 
"open" drives good students away fr:> • 
its doors; such a college acquires a bad 
name, and a school wi'.h a bad name 
cannot exist. Too lax restrictions pro- 
vide not only poor adverti ing and give 
the school a bad name, but actually in- 
vites the weaker student into conduct 
that might ordinarily be no temptation 
to him. 

Overemphasis of social life al o hinges 
on this question. If marks may he taken 
as indications of the attitude of the stu 
dent toward his work, a glance at the 
mid-semester grades is absolutely ap- 
palling. No less than 27'/ of the stu- 
dent body failed to pas. all th ir regis 
tered hours, which means that one out 
of every four students f;;iled in at least 
one subject. Thirty students have failed 
to pass the required (>o< , of registered 
hours, or have averages so low as to 
make them borderline cases. This would 
seem to indicate that there is too much 
laxity rather than too much restriction. 
These results are the ones inspected by 
the accrediting agencies who give the 
college its rating, so that it takes no 
genius to imagine what will happen to 
the standing of L. V. C. if tins down- 
ward trend continues. This is what con- 
cerns the administration and the facultv. 
This is what will cause future restric- 
tions to be invoked, and not a feeling of 
animosity. We too often forget what 
t lie administration must consider in de- 
termining its policies — it must remember 
the interests of the college, the student, 
the faculty, the board of trustees, the 
parents, and the alumni. Let us for our 
own sakes then abondon antagonism and

students may advantageously struggle at 
the present time are : 

(1) the right of students to disagree 
with their teachers concerning the con- 
clusions to be drawn from such evid- 
ence as is presented by teachers in

such disagreement ; 

(2) the right of students to present 
such evidence as they may care to pre- 
sent in class with a similar measure of 
impunity ; 

(3) the right of students to participate 
t'reely in class discussions ; 

(4) the right of students to a voice 
in the determination of the curriculum ;

Condensation of Report of the John 
Marshall College of Law, Committee on 
Students' Rights; a Reply to the Colum- 
bia Teachers College Report on Stud- 
ents' Rights : 

The Report tells us about certain 
"rights for which the Committee thinks 
students may advantageously struggle at 
the present time." What is the nature of 
this struggle to be? Would . . . violence 
be approved? Would (other endorsers) 
of the Report be obliged to help (an 
endorser) in this struggle? If not, why 
bother to have schools endorse this Re- 
port? This doctrine of the "student 
struggle" is strikingly similar to the 
Marxian doctrine of "class struggle", 
arraying . . . student against faculty 
. . . (though) such an idea may have 
been entirely foreign to their minds. 

The Committee urges "the right of 
students (when disagreeing with their 
teachers) to present as much evidence 
as they may care to present in class", 
with impunity. We object to this "right" 
because it robs the teacher of his right- 
ful authority. Nor is any limit placed 
on the amount of evidence a student 
may offer — nor how long may be taken 
in presenting that evidence. 

Another "psuedo" right ... is "the 
right of students to a voice in the cur- 
riculum". Does this mean actual power 
in determining . . . courses of study . .? 
The best judge of these means (to the 
end of education) should be one who has 
dedicated his life to their study. Such 
a one can be found only on the faculty. 

The last so-called right which we will 
discuss ... is "the right of a student 
to be tried by a jury of his fellow stud- 
ents in cases of disciplinary charges by 
the faculty or administration." Here 
again the faculty is forced to bow to 
the student in running the school. In- 
stead of teachers they would have to be 
lawyers. Imagine what chance a teacher 
would have in trying to convict a pop- 
ular campus idol before a jury made up 
of his admirers. 

The Report recommends the "exam- 
ination of American Documents on hum- 
an rights." This we have done. We have 
found that the Declaration of Independ- 
ence and the Columbia Students' Rights 
Report disagree as to the definition and 
origin of rights! (One says), "We hold 
these truths to be self evident, that all 
men are created equal; that they are 
endowed by their Creator with certain 
inalienable rights; that among these 
are the rights to life, liberty and the 
pursuit of happiness." The Report says, 
"rights are not inherent in the nature 
of things but are acquired through the 
struggle of those who feel a need for 
such rights." (If we accept this latter) 
we must cast aside the American philo- 
sophy of life. We must reject God as 
the Author of all rights and the source 
of all authority. When this is done, all 
we have left is Communism with its 
atheism or Fascism with its idolatry. 

It must be remembered that 
colleges are two kinds, state and 
private. A student enters (the lat- 
ter) voluntarily. At the start he 
contracts with the school to ob- 
serve its laws. If after his en- 
trance the laws prove irksome, 
that is his fault, his problem and 
nobody else's business. In state 
colleges, we likewise urge that 
the question of student rights is 
purely local. Governed as these 
schools are by the rules of each 
particular state, let the students 
of those states settle their aca- 
demic problems through their tax- 
paying parents. 

The following are some of the rights 
we feel students have by virtue of their 
position as students: 

(1) the right to be taught only what 
is true by their teachers; 

(2) the right to just grades. 

Lynches Entertain Faculty 

President and Mrs. C. A. Lynch 
I eld their annual reception and din- 
ner for members of the college facul- 
ty and their wives on Tuesday even- 
ing, November 24, at the Herthey 
community building dining room. A 
tasty turkey dinner was served in an 
attractive table setting. During the 
dinner the group was entertained by 
a musical trio composed of Miss Zei- 
ters, Miss Meinhardt, and Mr. Zettle- 
moyer. Guests of honor were Mrs. 
George Daniel Gossard, Dr. and Mrs. 
William A. Wilt, and Dr. and Mrs. 
J. Raymond Engle. After the dinner 
the guests attended the theater in a 

(3) the right to their own private 
opinions as to the evidence in class ; 

(4) the right to state their defense 
to the proper faculty authorities in cases 
of dismissal or disciplinary charges un- 
less otherwise contracted; 

(5) the right to send committees to the 
proper faculty authorities to present 
grievances or suggestions, subject to the 
rules of the institution; 

(6) the right to the proper means to 
carry out their school work. 

However, in the administration of 
school affairs, the running of classes, the 
determination of the curriculum, and 
regulating what societies shall or shall 
not exist on the campus, etc., all these 
powers rightfully belong to the faculty 
and administration. 

Any other right which students may 
have in their relations with their pro- 
fessors, we are not prepared to say. 
However, our Committee is continuing 
its studies and would welcome whatever 
suggestions other students may have. 
We do feel that the Columbia Teachers 
College Students' Rights Report as it 
now stands assuredly will not do. 

Valley Girl Hockeyists 
Journey To Susquehanna 

On Tuesday, November 17, the Leb- 
anon Valley Hockey Team defeated 
Shippensburg State Teachers College 
by score of 3-1 in the game played at 
Shippensburg. Ellenberger, Houck, and 
Price scored for the L. V. girls. 

Lebanon Valley was one of the partici- 
pants in the Hockey Play Day held at 
Susquehanna University November 21. 
In the first game of the day Susquehan- 
na defeated Lebanon Valley 1-0. Then 
Susquehanna in turn was defeated by 
Shippensburg, while in the last game of 
the morning Shippensburg lost to the 
Cedar Crest team. 

In the hour after lunch the L. V. C. 
coach, Miss Henderson, conducted a dis- 
cussion "Defensive Play in Hockey," 
Miss Raab, coach of Shippensburg, Miss 
Landis, coach of Cedar Crest, and Miss 
Reeder of Susquehanna, as well as play- 
ers of the various teams, contributed 
their opinions. 

In the first game of the afternoon, 
Cedar Crest again emerged a winner 
over the Susquehanna girls ; while in 
the second game of the afternoon, Ced- 
ar Crest defeated Lebanon Valley, thus 
garnering the laurels for the day. Leb- 
anon Valley secured their only victory 
in the last game of the day, when they 
defeated Shippensburg 1-0. Jean Houck 

scored the goal for the L. V. girls, 
while Ernestine Jagnesak turned in her 
usual brilliant performance at the cen- 
ter halfback post. 

Then all the players filed into the 
science hall to witness motion pictures 
showing approved hockey technique. As 
the final feature of the day the girls 
donned their evening clothes to attend 
the hockey banquet. Later the president 
of Susquehanna's W. A. A. introduced 
the faculty and guests present, and final- 
ly the speaker of the evening, who told 
of the International Matches she um- 
pired at Philadelphia last fall. She also 
told of her experiences and the thrills 
she received at the Olympic Games at 

Lebanon Valley was invited by 
Miss Landis to participate in a Hockey 
Play Day at Cedar Crest next fall. Miss 
Henderson, in turn invited all the 
schools present to come to a Play Day 
at Lebanon Valley next spring.

There are no pre-Christmas cage 
games scheduled for the Blue and White 
squad, so that the next several weeks 
will be employed in molding a smooth- 
working combination before the start of 
the league season in January. The seas- 
oned performers will probably be used 
in practically every position in the pre- 
liminary workouts so that the most sat- 
isfactory combination will be prepared 
to do battle for the Flying Dutchmen in 
the Eastern Pennsy Collegiate League 

Followers of the Blue and White are 
expecting much of this year's aggrega- 
tion, and the Flying Dutchmen are rated 
more than an outside chance of copping 
top honors in the league- The sports 
department of La Vie will endeavor to 
obtain more information concerning the 
other squads represented in the league 
before the next issue of the newspaper. 
However, at this early date, few of the 
schools have as yet organized their cage 
forces. Several league teams are known 
to be suffering from a dearth of veteran 
material, while several other teams will 
be well fortified with seasoned material. 



(Continued from page 1) 

Danny Seiverling tossed a pass to Bob 
Artz, who snaked and swivel-hipped 
past several tacklers and scored on as 
beautiful a jaunt as has been seen m 
this section this season. The Frosh con- 
verted the extra point when Geesev 
streaked around right end, scoring 
standing up. For the rest of the game 
the two teams battled on even terms. 

Although the entire freshman team 
played remarkably well, considering the 
lack of adequate practice, running off 
plays with precision and punch, several 
men stood out like beacons, namely Bob 
Artz, Jack Moller, and Johnnie Schaef- 
fer. Artz was undoubtedly the outstand- 
ing star of the game, gaining almost at 
will all morning. Moller at left end was 
a Titan on defense and a superb blocker 
on the offense. Schaeffer, after starting 
slowly, found his stride in the second 
half, and for the remainder of the game 
was a nettle in the side of the Sophs. 

For the Sophs, Howard Baier was the 
dray-horse, carrying the ball three out 
of four plays. It was Baier who kept the 
Sophs in the thick of the fight through- 
out the game. Co-starring with Baier 
were Clarence Lehman, who played a 
steady game at quarter, and Clyde ltae- 
zer, who proved a constant scoring 
threat, reeling off several substantial 

To the two coaches, Clyde Raezier 
and Chris Walk, go oodles of credit for 
organizing, in so short a time, two effi- 
cient and cooperating teams. Walk de- 
serves special tribute, as his team 
possessed a large variety of plays, the 
line blocked well, and the backfield func- 
lioned with precision. 

A marvelous spirit prevailed all day,

quired many new friends.

fective verses are those in which she 
describes familiar objects and places in 
the introspective terms of her mood, 
which is one of an unusual persistency. 
It was in this vein that she classified 
the works in question. 

Alice Richie read a short impression- 
istic study of a flood which offered a 
strange contrast to the factual simplicity 
of Helen Netherwood's article on living 
conditions in the anthracite regions. 

Louis Straub and Maxine Earley, 
however, restored the levity of the gath- 
ering with their parodies. Miss Earley 
produced a play-off on the short story 
as interpreted by the chaps who write 
for the newspaper feature syndicates, 
which was equalled only by the well 
known abilities of Straub who came 
through with a few additions to the 
Burma Shave series, including such 
variations as 

"/ saw this carved upon a grave, 

I came to this through Burma Shave!" 


"Dozvn in the mad-house 

Hear them rave —

Bill Clark afterwards read a satire on 
the melodrama of the '9o's entitled Cai- 
tiffs Crassly or Oh, the Shame of It! Its 
tone was slightly Rabelaisian, as is that 
of many of his writings. 

Over refreshments, which were Mrs 
Richie's enthusiastically received tribute 
to literature, an attempt was made to set- 
tle the business of vacancies, of which 
there are several at the moment, and 
that of the organization of material for 
the Green Blotter supplement to La Vie 
It has been over two years since the Ink 
Spots last put out a supplement, and as 
a result, their portofolios are crammed 
with material that the public should be 
allowed to read. As soon, therefore, as 
the publication committee can make def 
inite arrangements with the editor of 
La Vie and the Green Blotter, the sup 
plement will be forthcoming. Informa- 
tion concerning the filling of vacancies 
will also be available in a few days, if 
it shall not have already been made so

chestra, from 8 o'clock until 11:30. 
The dance was a fitting close to a

closely with the exception of South Hall. 
This is a discrepancy that the students 
on the East of the campus ought to be 
able to mend at the end of the semester. 

A third and most damning point which 
the statistics do not show is that no 
students failed to pass all the hours for 
which they were registered and that 30 
students are hanging around the 60% 

The highest average attained was a 
straight 95 per cent, the lowest 58 per 

The committee which compiled these 
statistics was composed of Roger Saylor 
and Francis MacMullen.

Club Explains Purposes 
In Wednesday Chapel 

Yesterday morning the International 
Relations Club Cabinet conducted the 
Chapel period. Dr. Stevenson made some 
explanatory remarks concerning the club 
and its purpose on our own campus, and 
presented Calvin Spitler and Charles 
Kinney. Mr. Spitler presented the work 
of the L R. C, explained its founda- 
tion and principles and spoke to the 
student body concerning the I. R. C. 
conference at the University of Dela- 
ware, Newark, Delaware last week. Mr. 
Kinney spoke on some of the impressions 
that he gained at the conference as a 
result of participating in several round- 
table sessions and hearing world-famous

Lebanon Valley College has recently 
been the recipient of a valuable collec- 
tion of books from the estate of Wil- 
liam E. Schaak, former Lebanon at- 

Numbered in the donation are about 
two hundred books, the law library be- 
ing the principal beneficiary. More than 
one hundred of the volumes pertain di- 
rectly to legal questions and are par- 
ticularly adapted to a detailed study of 
the law of this state. Included in the 
collection are such valuable books as 
the American and English Encyclopedia 
of Lazv, Barnes' Federal Code, Purdon's 
Digest of Statute Law of Pennsylvania, 
Vale's Digest of Decisions of the Courts 
of Pennsylvania — 1754-1900, and other 
books regarding agricultural and crimin- 
al law of this state. The law library al- 
ready boasts of a large number of valu- 
able volumes for the use of pre-legal 
students, and the additions from the 
Schaak Estate represent a worthy con- 
tribution which will ease the task of the 
legal research student. 

Also included in the donation are other 
volumes which will enhance the college 
library's collection of books. These addi- 
tional contributions are a complete set of 
the works of Thomas Paine, Talley- 
rand's Memoirs, sixteen volumes of bi-

Under the direction of Miss Gayle 
Mountz, the anniversary president, the 
Clionian Literary Society held its six- 
ty-fifth anniversary dance in the ball- 
room of the Hotel Hershey, Saturday 
December 5 at 8 o'clock. 

The music was provided by Alex 
Bartha and his orchestra who have ap- 
peared on the Steel Pier in Atlantic 

The members of the society turned 
out in full force and many alumni were 
there. Among those present were Jane 
Shellenberger, Iva Claire Weirick, 
Francis Hoffman Colbert, Margaret 
Kohler, Louvain Roberts, Charlotte 
Weirick, Irma Kieffer, Mildred Nye, 
Jane Showers, Anne Matula, Anna Erd- 
man, and Margaret Longenecker. 

Committee chairmen for the dance 
were : chaperons, Maxine Earley ; place, 
Eleanor Lynch ; orchestra, Eleanor En- 
gle ; and favors, Lois Harbold. 

The favors were qu v e unusual. There 
were three-compartment cigarette boxes 
of metal with the seal and Greek letters 
for the men and bracelets to match for 
the girls. 

The chaperons were Mrs. Mary C. 
Green, Dr. and Mrs. A. H. M. Stone-

Last Saturday night the Delphian 
pledges were given their second and

more girls were in charge of the ar- 
rangements and learned some amazing 
facts when the pledges confessed their 
secret sins. After the traditional cere- 
mony had been completed, the society 
sponsored an open house. Individual and

To Entertain Co-Eds 

The annual Christmas parties at the 
girls' dormitories will take place on 
Thursday evening, December 17, at ten 
o'clock, following the operetta. The 
dormitories will have Christmas trees 
and laurel decorations to carry out the 
spirit of the occasion. All the girls have 
drawn names and will buy ten cent ar- 
ticles for the person whose name they 
received- South Hall will be honored 
by the estimable presence of Santa 
Claus, himself {herself?), who will dis- 
tribute the gifts. Following the pro- 
grams, refreshments will be served. The 
North Hall program consists of a piano 
selection by Ruth Ruppersberger, French 
Christmas carols by the three tone 
hades, Lucille Maberry, Isabel Cox, 
and Arlene Hoffman, a recitation by 
Evelyn Evans, and a song by Jeanne 
Schock. In South Hall there will be two 
skits presented, Mildred Gangwer will 
sing, Greta Heiland will recite, Cordelia 
Schaeffer, and Katherine Zwally will 
give several of her clever impersonations. 

West Hall will be entertained by a 
number of French and German Christ- 
mas carols, a short play (to use those 
curtains between the two parlors we are 
told), a vocal selection by Esther Wise, 
and selections by the piano trio, Esther

International Topics Interest I. R. C. Delegates 

The Middle Atlantic conference of the 
International Relations Clubs, which art- 
sponsored by the Carnegie Endowment 
for International Peace, was held last 
Friday and Saturday at the University 
of Delaware. A number of issues were 
raised, according to the local delegates, 
Calvin Spitler, Charles Kinney, and Wm. 
F. Clark, who attended witli Dr. Steven- 

One of the most outstanding men at 
the meeting was Dr. Otto Nathan, for- 
merly economic adviser to the German 
republic and at present lecturer in eco- 
nomics at New York University. Dr. 
Nathan, who delivered the principal ad- 
dress, stands against Fascism because of 
the ruthless manner in which it strides 

over the individual. 

The conference, however, officially 
opened at three o'clock on Friday after- 
noon with an address on International 
peace by Dr. William C. Johnstone, dean 
of the junior college at George Washing- 
ton University. Mr. Johnstone evidence:! 
a comprehensive knowledge of interna- 
tional affairs and their significance, al- 
though his address raised no very chal- 
lenging questions. 

After the conference supper, held in 
the Commons of Delaware College, Dr. 
Ernest M. Patterson of the Wharton 
School of the University of Pennsylvania 
gave a discussion of "The Economic For- 
eign Policy of the United States." Mr. 
Patterson is of the opinion that there 

are wheels within wheels, which is to 
say that the cause of economic effects 
and regulations is not always obvious 
and sometimes even unpredictable. 

After the address was ended, round 
table discussions were held on a variety 
of topics which have an international 
significance, such as the League of Na- 
tions, conflict in the Far East, modern 
Fan-American policy, or "Democracy vs. 
Dictatorship," which was the subject of 
conversation at the discussion attended 
by the present correspondent. Among 
those present were Dr. Nathan and oth- 
er distinguished persons. One of the 
most colorful figures at the discussion, 
however, was Isidore Hirsch, of Long

Chapel And Other Reforms 
Promised ; Petty Griev- 
ances Dropped. 

The senate committee appointed by 
President Duey Unger some time ago 
to replace the "committee (if five" went 
into conference Tuesday afternoon with 
the senate-faculty committee before Dr. 
Clyde A. Lynch and Mr. J. P. Engle, 
president of the Board of Trustees. This 
conference was held for the purpose of 
examining the list of grievances 
which the special senate committee had 
drawn up as an organized expression of 
student sentiment which culminated In 
some very pointed agitation upon a re- 
cent occasion in the men's dormitory. 
Since this meeting was arranged solely 
for the purpose of airing opinions and 
general and specific discusLn leading 
toward mutual understanding between 
student body and administration, no mo- 
tions were made and no resolutions were 

Dr. Stevenson, chairman of the senate- 
faculty committee, assumed charge ot 
the conference and asked that the vari- 
ous points of grievance be presented in 
the order of their importance. The arti- 
cles in point were read off and carefully 
weighed and frankly discussed by all 

One of the chief items dealt with the 
lack of appeal of the chapel services in 
our college. It was suggested that a 
change in their form or a reduction in 
their frequency be effected. Another 
point given much thought was the crowd- 
ed condition of the day students' room. 
The unsatisfactory condition and func- 
tioning of the showers in the men's dor- 
mitory also received much consideration. 
These and similar points engaged the

Perhaps the most sought-after spot on the Lebanon Valley campus is the 
stage of the college chapel in Engle Conservatory. Plays, Junior and dramatic club, 
recital rehearsals, organ practice, etc. — all require the use of the chapel. As Lebar 
non Valley is somewhat handicapped by lack of space of this type, there is stern, 
competition from college and conservatory for the occupancy of the stage. A lew 
suggestions, if modified and developed suitably, may improve conditions. 

A large part of the rigid schedule for the use of the chapel is devoted to organ 
practice by conservatory students. If these students could be given another organ 
to practice upon, much time would be saved for dramatic rehearsals. We sugges.. 
the organ of the United Brethren Church, the college church, which, by reason of 
its association with Lebanon Valley, should be willing to extend this opportunity. 

By this move — the use of the college church organ for student practice — Leba- 
non Valley would be following the examples of other colleges in similar predica- 
ments. The rapidly-growing conservatory, whose sudden expansion has caused the 
difficulty, would have a more flexible program, and the college students, who surely 
are entitled to freer use of their only stage, would be relieved of a pressing worry.

West Chester State Teachers' College, 
having the greatest number of points to 
that end, was awarded the attendance

Before we go any further, shall we 
clear up one little matter? Right! Al- 
lons: keeping both ears to the ground, 
(no comparisons, please) we gather that 
several of the local citizenry are under 
the impression that the purpose of this 
column is to ridicule campus personali- 
ties, events, etc. 

Perish the thought, we say! In fact, 
far be us from it! Anyone even faintly 
aware of La Vie policies should in- 
stantly realize that such a column "sim- 
ply isn't done." So, let it be understood 
that Villiann is writing of campus inci- 
dents (based upon facts, but with added 
flights of harmless fancy) for the sake of 
the possible amusing aspects therein con- 
tained. (Our Uncle is a lawyer). Re- 
member: "Honi soit qui mal y pense" !

lave a good sense of rumor".) 


Yoicks! The ice-cream freezer at the 
kitchen is practically repaired! We have 
it on very good authority (a wauter) 
that there's even the possibility of our 
surrounding a dip of the very luscious 
vanilla by Sunday. 

It seems that they hadn't any repair 
parts in stock and had to make a cast- 
ing of the broken part — following the 
original blueprints as drawn up by Rob- 
ert Fulton.

Coach Jerry Frock has issued his call 
for freshman basketball candidates, re- 
ceiving a response from a promising- 
group of twenty aspirants. The athletic- 
department is busy preparing a schedule 
of games for the Frosh, and, as in last 
year's schedule, a large majority of the 
games for the Greenies will be planned 
as preliminary contests for the home 
varsity battles.

The sports department of La Vie is 
glad to note the early start of the inter- 
class competition. Last year the start 
of the schedule was delayed until late in 
the season and interest seemed to fade 
rapidly before the complete list of games 
had been contested. An early start and 
a schedule of nine games for each team 
will increase interest among players and 
spectators of the league, so that a rip- 
roaring season of basketball activity is 
being anticipated for the interclass

In the final interclass game of the 
season the Junior-Frosh combination and 
the Senior-Soph aggregation fought to 
a scoreless deadlock last week. The teams 
were very evenly matched, and both 
threatened to score on numerous occa- 
sions, but each time the defense with- 
held and the offensive attack failed. In 
spite of the muddy condition of the field 
and the numerous spills, the girls were 
able to execute rather brilliant passing 
plays and showed improved stick work.

Scheduled For Saturday 

Clio and Kalo will meet together Sat- 
urday night in Kalo hall at 7:30 P. M. 
sharp for a very lively hour of entertain- 
ment prepared by the Frosh members of 
the two societies. At the same time Del- 
phian and Philo will meet in Philo 
hall for their program. 

At 8:30, the four societies will join 
in the gymnasium to dance for the rest 
of the evening. 

Everyone on and off campus should 
plan to attend this evening of fun. Enjoy

as those held during the week! 

Japanese Bazaar 

The annual Japanese Bazaar, spon-

last Thursday afternoon from 3:30 
until 6:30. The stock of Japanese 
articles, including prints, novelties of 
all sorts, kimonos, slippers, and 
luncheon sets, was sold completely. 
The "Y" cleared a considerable pro- 
fit, which will be placed in the private 
fund to be used in the future for some 
Y. W. C. A. project. 

Revamped Cage League 
Is Inaugurated Monday 

On Monday night the sophs and the 
juniors inaugurated the 1936-37 Inter- 
class Basketball League, the juniors win- 
ning a tight ball game by the score of 
27-24 before a large crowd of specta- 

The Men's Senate, with the idea of 
developing greater spirit and better or- 
ganization, disbanded the intra-mural 
league of last year, substituting in its 
stead an inter-class league. The schedule 
consists of eighteen games, each team 
playing every other team three times, the 
games to be played twice a week, on 
Mondays and Wednesdays. A tentative 
schedule has been drawn up but is not 
ready for publication, as it has yet to be 
approved by the Activities Committee. 
Judging from the crowd of Monday 
evening, the games will be followed with 
a great deal of interest this year. In 
the lid-raiser the juniors were paced 
to victory by the sharpshooting of 
Marsh Frey, Dean Gasteiger, and Dolph 
Capka, with 14, 8, and 5 points respec- 
tively. For the sophs, Joe Thomas with 
8 points, "Tink" Silvers, with 6, and 
"Bob" Tschop, with 4, kept their team 
in the running.

What They Say 

Question — Do you think King Ed- 
ward VIII is doing right in his de- 
termination to marry Mrs, Simpson, 
or should he do as cabinet sees fit? 

We are all human beings and have i 

right to do as we see fit. 

* * * 

ANNA ORTH, Senior— It would get 
him out of a lot of difficulties if he didn't 
marry her. 

» * * 

man he should marry her— as a king he 
should not.

ESTHER FLOM, Junior— I don't 
think he should marry her. I think it is 

just a wild goose chase!

PHIL LESTER, Freshman— \ think 
i.e should marry her. There are enougl 

ether people who can be king.

JEAN HARNISH, Senior — I think he 
should marry her if he wants to — other 
kings of England have married women 

worse than Wally.

JOSEPH THOMAS, Sophomore— 1 
think he should marry her. He ought to 
know what's what — he's been waiting 
long enough.

EVELYN EVANS, Freshman — By all 
means he should marry Wally — it's no- 
li civ's business but thvir own.

FRANKLIN ZERBE, Sophomore— i 
don't think he should marry her. It 
would evolve a crisis in the British Em-

Rec Hour Returns 

Recreation hours are back in full 
swing once more. The prospect of 
opening the gym for an hour after 
dinner on Tuesday and Thursday 
nights for dancing and games has 
been taken up enthusiastically by the 
students. Each week one of the eight 
societies or campus organizations 
takes the responsibility of sponsoring 
this hour. Ping-pong and card games 
are available to everyone as well as 
dancing. An N. Y. A. orchestra has 
been promised within another week 
to provide the music. 

This is an hour of real sociability. 
Formality is thrown to the winds. 
This plan, which was adopted to help 
com pen sate the lack of a recreation 
hall, has met with a sincere student 

"The Messiah" To Be 
Sung Next Thursday 

Tuesday evening a capacity audience 
heard our Glee Club and Symphony or- 
chestra together with the Chancel Choir 
of the First Methodist Episcopal Church 
of Lancaster and guest soloists in their 
rendition of The Messiah, by Handel, 
in the Lancaster church. Thursday even- 
ing of next week, this same group will 
be here to give a second rendition in 
Engle Hall. Tickets at twenty-five cents 
are being sold by students of the con- 

The following is an historical descrip- 
tion of The Messiah as compiled by Don- 
ald Nixdorf, director of the Lancaster 
choir collaborating with the Glee Club: 
"According to Lawrence Gilman, noted 
music critic, it is estimated that if the 
lowest royalty ever paid on a musical 
work had been paid on Messiah since it 
was first sung in London 194 years ago, 
over 10 MILLION DOLLARS would 
have been paid for performances in 
masterpiece unique in music, is a thing 
of ageless wonder and genius, which for 
almost two centuries has amazed and 
delighted the musician and consoled and 
uplifted the man in the street. 

"It was on August 22,1741, that Han 
del sat down at his desk and began to 
put notes on paper with astonishing 
speed. He was absorbed in his task; he 
did not leave the house; he often re- 
fused to eat. Twenty-three days later 
he placed the manuscript in his drawer, 
snuffed the candle, and went to bed. He 
had completed Messiah. The composi- 
tion was a task which had deeply moved 
him. One day his servant found him in 
tears, — he had just finished the 'Halle- 
lujah Chorus.' Said Handel, T did see 
all heaven before me, and the great God 

"About this time London had turned 
against him and he was sick at heart, but 
an invitation to Ireland to give benefit 
concerts for charities had arrived and 
was accepted. So it was in Dublin that 
the work was first heard on Tuesday, 
April 13, 1742, 'at the Musick Hall in 
Fishamble Street, for the benefit of the 
Prisoners in the several Gaols, and for 
the support of Mercer's Hospital and of 
the Charitable Infirmary on Inn's 
Quay.' The newspapers of Dublin also 
requested 'the Favour of ladies not to 
come with hoops this day, and the gen- 
tlemen to come without swords.' These 
noble sacrifices enabled 100 more per- 
sons to hear the performance. 

"On March 23, 1743, Messiah was 
sung for the first time in England, at 
Covent Garden. One performance was 
attended by the King, who, as every 
one knows, was so moved by the exalted 
splendor of the 'Hallelujah Chorus' that 
he rose to his feet and remained stand- 
ing until the end of the number. The 
audience followed suit and to this day 
the custom is carried out the world over. 

"Messiah was at first unpopular. The 
Church was outraged, viewed the work 
as a sacrilege, and the clergy tried to 
close the theatre- Few recognized the 
greatness of the music. Not until al- 
most a decade after its first London 
performance did it win popularity and 
become beloved. The great work is still 
marvelous, — marvelous in its blend of 
strength and tenderness, in its elevation

Island U., who read a paper on the pres- 
ent strength of Communism. Mr. Hirsch 
turned out to he a strong protagonist 
of the totalitarian state, and continually 
attempted to defend his views against 
the protests of the more conservative 
element present. Since many of the stu 
dents participating in the discussion had 
made a special study of the matter, and 
quite a few were the brightest lights o 
intellect on their respective campuses 
die discussion was naturally brilliant 
An effort was made to restrict the re 
marks of the delegates to 'the subject 
.natter described in the agenda, viz., the 
present strength of Fascism and Com 
munism, in comparison with democracy 
but the proponents of such forms of 
government were determined to be 
neard and would not be downed, because 
they refused to admit, as the agenda as 
sinned, that new forms of government 
are wrong because they are radical. The 
vvriter found greater difficulty in getti- 
a word in edgewise or otherwise than in 
any previous round table conference 
which he had attended. 

The next meeting was held in the au 
uLorium of Mitchell Hall, a recently 
erected building of unusual and highly 
aesthetic design, for the purpose of com- 
paring notes. In this informal discussion 
t was learned that many schools admit 
only honor students, or pol sci majors 
o the IRC group. At one school, it is 
considered, in fact, the most exclusive 
organization on campus. Several schools 
said that they did not admit freshmen, 
a few excluded women, and one barrec 
both women and mi. listers (!). Most of 
them, however, use the plan which has 
been adopted by Lebanon Valley, i. e., 
permitting anyone to become a membei 
who is interested. The nucleus of the 
organization, however, is limited to 
specific number, called the IRC cabinet, 
and these conduct all the principal oper- 
ations of the club. Only those of distin- 
guished ability and manifest interest are 
admitted to this cabinet. A number of 
schools give lectures in schools and 
clubs, and a few have secured the righ^ 
to broadcast interpolations of interna- 
tional news at regular intervals. 

During the afternoon the round-table 
discussions of the previous evening were 

continued. This session, however, prove'! 
mainly inferior in interest to the first, 
due to the fact that most of the brilliant 
people had got their say in at the first 
session. The banquet held that evening, 
and the dance which followed it, how- 
ever, served to round off the business. 
In the course of conversation at the lat- 
ter affair the correspondent drew the 
conclusion that, perhaps surprisingly, 
more women than men seemed to be vi- 
tally interested in the significance of in- 
ternational affairs, and what are classi- 
fied generally under the title of "serious 
problems." It was also our impression 
that the people from most of the colleges 
present, whether men or women, were 
better informed, more interested in in- 
ternational affairs, and more unpreju- 
diced than people from the local campus. 

Ihere were more than 180 students 
ami at least 60 faculty members pres- 
ent at the convention. The IRC of Dela- 
ware U., an off-shoot of fheir Athenaeum 
Society, handled this crowd with ease 
and convenience apparently. Everything, 
in fact, was remarkable for the compe- 
tent treatment which it was accorded.

style, its beauty of sweep of line. 
Music has learned much since Handel's 
day but no one has yet duplicated Mes- 
siah. Handel was unaware that he had 
built for endlessness. In this music, im- 
memorial words, immortal words, be- 
come flesh and walk among us. It is this 
writer's opinion that men such as Handel 
are every bit as great as any of the 

earnest deliberation of these faculty and 
student representatives for fully an hour 
and a half. When the meeting adjourned 
it was evident that the body had ob- 
tained a more complete understanding 
of the affairs and conditions which have 
tended somewhat to place the adminis- 
tration and student body at odds. The 
meeting, however, was held on amicable 
terms, and there were many indications 
that the sound grievances presented 
would be remedied by the administration 
with all possible promptness, while those 
without cause or foundation would be 
abandoned by the students. 

Why worry? Serious-minded people 
are chiefly those who are too dense to 
get the drift.

Great Success at L. V. 


soeeches And Decorations 
Feature Festive Occasion 
Excellent Menu Prepared 

The dormitory students attended 

sse s today with a rather reminiscent 
probably as a result of last night's 
SJous banquet, the result of chef Ed- 
- ie Loose's careful planning. The menu 

geed to remind us of Christmas din- 
ars years ago at grandmother's. Fruit 
° cream of celery soup, cocktail 
crackers, olives, radishes and celery 
hearts as appetizers for the most deli- 
cious part that followed, roast turkey 
„ith giblet gravy and chestnut filling. 
^Iso candied sweet potatoes and fresh 
peas, with a tart salad of hearts of let- 
tuce with Russian dressing to add a Ut- 
ile zest to the finish of mince pie a la 
mode, coffee, and mints. Salted nuts 
were served in candy baskets. 

The decorations for the occasion were 
very suitably carried out in red and 

There were lighted wreaths at the 
doors, laurel hung from the central 
lights, which were colored red and green. 
The newel posts and banisters were spi- 
rally wound with laurel twined with 
poinsettas at intervals. Red and green 
crepe paper strips spirally wound the 
pillars and were set off by laurel and 
poinsetta adornments at the bases. A 
tree decorated with icicles and red and 
green lights was advantageously situat- 
ed on the landing above the entrance. 
Red and green candles on the tables fur- 
nished light for the banquet. The tables

Philo hall became the scene of festi-

joint session last Saturday evening. 

The program was opened by Rose 
Tschopp, who sang, "I Love Life' in 
her usual pleasing manner. Nellie Mor-

melody of popular numbers, at the pi-

Rendition of Oratorio 
in Engle Hall Tonight 

Will Combine Talents Of Glee 
Club And Lancaster Chan- 
cel Choir 

Music lovers are urged to attend the 
rendition of Handel's oratorio, The Mes- 
siah, this evening at eight-fifteen in En- 
gle Hall. The Chancel Choir, of First 
Methodist Episcopal Church, Lancaster, 
will be the guests of our Glee Club, and 
will combine with our singers in five 
choruses from the oratorio. 

Miss Dorothy Shaak, soprano; Karl 
Aument, tenor; Crafton Cheney, bass; 
all of Lancaster, will be guest soloists; 
and Miss Charlotte Stab'ey, of Red Lion, 
graduate of the conservatory last year, 
will sing the contralto solo parts. 

Donald Nixdorf, director of the Lan- 
caster choir, will conduct the concert. 

The conservatory symphony orchestra 
will accompany the chorus, and Miss 
Sara Light, organist, will accompany the 

Tickets at twenty-five cents are being 
sold by students of the conservatory. 
College students and local people are 
urged to take advantage of the single 
Christmas concert the conservatory will 
present this year. 

Dr. Lietzau Addresses Club 

The German Club meeting on 
Tuesday night was devoted entirely 
to a Christmas Program. Dr. Liet-

on in foreign lands and explained how 
different customs have been handed 
down through generations from tribal 
days. She spoke specifically of cus- 
toms in France, England, Germany, 
Greece, Vienna, and other lands. Sev-

by the group concluded the prograrr 

L. V. C. Forensic Teams 
Reorganize For Season 

The advent of winter finds a renewal 
of activity on the part of Lebanon Val- 
ley's debaters. Skeletal plans were out- 
lined by Dr. Stevenson to a La Vie rep- 
resentative as they have been laid for 
the approaching season. Dr. Stevenson 
will not himself coach the parliament- 
arians this year, he announced. In his 
place, Dr. Shenk has consented to serve 
as mentor of the boys' teams, while Prof. 
Stokes will assume direction of the girls. 

Charles Kinney has been chosen as 
manager for the men's teams, in the 
position vacated by Robert Kell, who 
has retired from pressure of other duties. 
He will be assisted by Dean Gasteiger in 
his managerial tasks, Dr. Stevenson as- 
serted. The feminine dialecticians will be 
mar.aged by Grace Naugle, with Mar- 
garet Holbrook seconding. 

The ranks of the squad of last year 
have been decimated by graduation, and 
a number of berths are open to talented 
orators. Everyone possessing speaking 
ability is therefore requested by the de- 
bating organization to contact Prof. 
Stokes. Only in this way can the team be 
representative of Lebanon Valley's best. 

The managers, meanwhile, are rapidly 
completing a schedule of meets, which 
will pit the local haranguers against 
some of the best teams of the East. As 
in the past, they anticipate a loyal and 
numerous following of these debates, 
since debating has always been among 
the favorite winter activities on the cam- 


La Vie joins in congratulating Dr. 
and Mrs. Struble upon the arrival of 
a daughter, Marian Trygue. Mother

Tsk, Tsk, It Can't Happen Here 

The other day we came across an 
NYA worker who was actually working. 
We have seen several of them doing 
that, however, and might not have no- 
ticed at all but for the fact that this 
NYA worker, unique, we suspect, among 
his kind, had an assistant of fairly able 
character— not in another NYA worker, 
but in a parent. This business, we were 
informed was all right because it had 
been going on for some time with offi- 
cial permission in order that the student, 
who was a little too busy to work as 
much under NYA as was desired, might, 

by this means, achieve the requisite num- 
ber of hours. 

However, inquiry later revealed that 
official permission had not been granted 
sanctioning this irregularity, because, we 
infer, it is the policy of the NYA to dis- 
tribute all the available work equitably 
among the needy, rather than allowing 
single students to monopolize it. 

Of course, we have no objection if 
nothing is done about it because we 
should like to get in the velvet too— 
there are fourteen in our family, and

Reviewed by William F. Clark 

This article is supposed to be a critical evaluation of the play, Alison's House, 
which, as every one knows, the juniors presented here last Friday evening. Past 
experience warns us, however, that, before beginning such an article, the necessity 
of preventing public misunderstandings of an unpleasant nature compels us to 
explain what we are doing. Therefore, at the risk of insulting the intelligence of 
our readers, we include the introductory remarks which follow. 

First, we desire the public to understand that we have no object in printing 
this critique save that of reporting faithfully to the subscribers what occurred on 
the occasion we are discussing, and of remitting the persons directly concerned 
wherein they failed and succeeded, so that, in the future, they may remedy their 

weaknesses and continue to embellish 
their talents. We believe that this ob- 
jective may be most effectively attained 
if we do not bandy words. We, there- 
fore, shall praise what appealed to us 
and condemn what did not. 

There will be, of course, those who 
disagree with us in whole or part ; 
that is their prerogative. However, we 
maintain there are certain inflexible cri- 
teria whereon a critical judgment ought 
to be based and that our judgment is so 
founded. In determining precisely how 
our subjects stack up against these ab- 
solute standards, we are humanly fal- 
lible, of course, but we have been se- 
lected to write dramatic criticism, not 
on any assumption of infallibility, but 
rather because the editors presume us to 
be willing to differentiate between the 
"critical canon" and our personal pre- 
dilections and prejudices. 

The text of the sermon now being off 
the critical chest, we shall next hold a 
mass execution in effigy — though we 
should appreciate warmly the privilege 
of performing it in actuality of certain 
persons who determined in large part the 
degree to which the play was success- 
ful. We refer to the audience. Although 
it is slightly out of our province to 
do so, we feel that the large number of 
assorted idiots, yawps and yokels present 
should have been given the freedom of 
the nearest gaol where they might have 
entertained one another with their excel- 
lent exhibition of human stupidity with- 
out any interference from the actors. 
Their unprovoked guffaws, their ob- 
streperous amusement at seeing their 
friends in a situation a little different 
from the one they hold in daily life, and 
their attempts to hiss and applaud in- 
opportunely we commend to the atten- 
tion of the nearest alienist. In saying 
this, of course, we do not infer that the 
whole audience deserved to be spanked. 
We indicate merely the atrocious con- 
duct of a clique whom we should take 
pleasure in seeing annihilated. 

And now, at last, to the real business 
at hand. We shall begin with the cita- 
tions which go to Sylva Harclerode as 
Ann Leslie, Charlie Raab as Ted Stan- 
hope, Catherine Mills as Louise, Vernon 
Rodgers as Hodges, and Helen Butter- 
wick as Mrs. Hodges. Minor citations 
are also in order to Lucille Hawthorne 
as Jennie, and Curvin Thompson as the 

The main duties of Miss Harclerode 
consisted in being sympathetic toward 
every one else, which is a fair to mid-

Kalo-Clio Burlesque 
In Annual Program 

Freshmen Members Display 
Unusual Talents for Enter- 

Last Friday evening in Kalo Hall the 
Frosh Kalozeteans and Clionians com- 
bined to produce a clever entertaining 
program. When the musical discord was 
heard, station B-A-T-H presented 
through the courtesy of the No-Leak 
Bathtub Inc. (pronounced ink) thirty 
minutes of delicious and delightful en- 
tertainment. Like all true radio pro- 
grams this one began with its "amazing 
offer" — this one being even more amaz- 
ing, since it necessitated the shipping of 
your bathtub (and if not the bathtub, 
the kitchen sink) to Czecho-Slovakia in 
order to receive free of charge a beauti- 
ful hand-painted stopper. 

The mike was then "taken away" by 
Warren Brown and his jazz band which 
played in the approved fashion a few of 
the latest song hits. Dean Aungst, the 
announcer, and Warren Brown and his 
cohorts were all appropriately arrayed 
in bath robes and towels. 

Next in order, the Three Soap Sis- 
ters, otherwise known as Margie Gerry, 
Ruth Ruppersberger, and Minerva Hoff- 
man sang an original little ditty entitled,

During the past year a local mother contracted tuberculosis and was sent to a 
sanatorium. It was discovered by the tuberculin te3t that she had unknowingly 
infected her children. Ihe X-ray revealed that one of these young girls had active 
disease, in an early form, found in time for her to be cured at a sanatorium where 
she went recently. 

Finding tuberculosis before there are any outward symptoms which would 
lead a patient to seek medical advice is one of the important methods of combat- 
ing the disease used by tuberculosis clinics and associations. Ihere is ctill much to 
be accomplished when it is pointed out that nearly twice as many persons are killed 
by tuberculosis as lose their lives in automobile accidents in a year in Pennsyl- 
vania, and that nearly two-thirds of all the deaths occur before the age of 45, more 
than half between 15 and 45, in the prime of life. 

The case of the local mother and others brings home the meaning behind the 
Christmas Seals and what they are doing to prevent human suffering and misery. 
The proceeds from the sale of these stamps supports a movement to eliminate a 
preventable disease which has had no equal in history for the amount of distress it 
has caused, but which, with scientific means, can be brought under control. 

You can help in this great humanitarian movement by purchasing Christinas 
Seals. Subscribe, this year, to more than your usual amount. You will help 
others, and yourself.

L. V. Religious Activities 

Y. M.. Y. W. 

As is customary, the Y. W. C. A. and 
the Y. M. C. A. will make at this Christ- 
mas season pecuniary contributions to 
be utilized for aiding some needy family. 
This year, however, the Y organizations 
instead of contacting the needy family 
directly will offer their assistance in- 
directly through the agency of the Ann- 
ville Welfare Association. Since this or- 
ganization can more adequately select 
the most -needy family and can buy food 
at wholesale price, the Y organizations 
have chosen this method for the distri- 
bution of their funds.

The Christmas theme and spirit com- 
pletely predominated the impressive 
prayer service held in Philo Hall on 
Wednesday evening, Dec. g. Audrie Fox 
conducted the meeting; Ethel Wilt read 
the scriptural Christmas story found in 
the second chapter of Matthew; Lucy 
Cook presented a saxophone solo. The 
sincere, colorful celebration of the 
Christmas season in the foreign lands, 
particularly Italy, Spain, and Holland 
was compared with the commercializa- 
tion of Christmas in America by the 
speaker, Flora Strayer. The origin of 
the Christmas tree, of the candles, and of 
caroling was an interesting sidelight of 
the Christmas address.

The Y. M. C. A. Vesper service on 
Sunday evening, Dec. 13, was in charge 
of Paul Slonaker, who read the first 
Psalm as a scripture lesson and offered 
the evening prayer. Vernon Rogers en- 
titled his informal talk Character. He 
emphasized the importance of embody- 
ing in our lives, daily, the Christlike 
principles and particularly their appli- 
cation in all of our college relationships.

An appeal for a more emphatic reali- 
zation of the spiritual presence of the 
true Christ in our preparation for the 
coming Christmas season was the cen- 
tral theme of Paul Horn's well-delivered, 
stirring sermon, The Supremacy of 
\Christ. This sermon was delivered on 
Sunday evening, December 13, at Shoe- 
makersville, Penna. In charge of this 
L. W. R. deputation was Elwood Needy. 
Amy Meinhart played a piano solo; 
Daniel Shearer sang Just As I Am and 
Stifle Nacht, Hcilige Nacht; Warren 
Brown contributed two baritone solos, 
The Sweetest Story Ever Told and 
Without a Song. After the service, the 
deputation-group visited a parishioner at 
whose home they witnessed a most un- 
usual display of masterful wood-carving. 

# * * 

The L. W. R. accompanied Dr. Richie 
to the Lebanon County Home on Sun- 
day afternoon, Dec. 13. Daniel Shearer 
presented the devotions; Verna Schlos- 
ser and Jean Hitz at the piano and 
trumpet respectively, furnished special 
musical selections. John Miller was the 
accompanist. Dr. Richie chose the title 
Jesus, the Only Friend for his address. 

Another deputation of this past week- 
end traveled to Avon, Penna., on Sun- 
day evening, Dec. 13. Audrie Fox pre- 
sided at the service, led the evening pray- 
er, and read the scripture. Conservatory 
members provided the musical contibu- 
tions of the evening. Frank Bryan played 
a trombone solo; James Ralston a piano 
solo ; Elnora Reeder vocalized two se- 
lections, The Great Awakening and 
'/'here's a Song in the Air. James Ralston 
was the accompanist. The sermon Past- 
Prcsent-Future was delivered by How- 
ard Peffley. 

It Isn't Done 

We've always wondered what went on 
in the minds of the local actors during 
those perious onstage when th.y weren't 
actually reciting lines. So we ran on- 
stage after the seco..d act curtain last 
Fra.ay f, M. a.,d grabbed the 'letter" 
tnat Cnarlie Haab had supposedly writ- 
ten. Comment would be superfluous; we 
simply present the letter as written:

to come out and work on the staging 01 
their play. Tluy stayed away in droves.

them the furniture practically had to

There is probably 
"crTto be said in favor of the organi- 


of a second league, but, judging 
we feel that a 

m past experience, 

ond league would be a destructive 
* t j,er than a constructive measure. 
Last year there were two leagues 
organized and as the season pro- 
gressed, Merest in both waned, and 
a 6 interclass league did not even 
complete Us schedule of games. The 
proponents of the second league this 
year plan to have a playoff between 
lie two division winners at the close 
<)f the season, but we doubt very 
much if there would be any interest 
m either league remaining by that 

Last year the number of players eligi- 
ble for each team was too small and 
teams practically always played without 
benefit of substitutes and frequently 
with only three or four men on hand to 
participate. It is true that the two 
leagues would be organized on a differ- 
ent basis this season, but the fact re- 
mains that the outfits in both leagues 
would experience considerable difficulty 
in filling out their respective rostra. Un- 
der a two-league system, there would be 
so large a number of games each week 
that none of them would draw any 
worthy student support, and La Vie 
fears that the two leagues would go the 
woeful way of last year's two leagues. 
This department favors the continuance 
°f the single league as the lone exponent 
°f intramural competition. 

All the attention of La Vie, the 
fleers, and the spectators can then 
be focused on this league. Certainly 
the complete schedule as drawn up 
contains enough games to give all 
those who care to participate a suf- 
fiaemt chance to break into the line- 
% Proponents of a second league 
way argue that too many players 
w e forced to sit on the bench in the 
m <!le-league competition, Imt we 
ar !iue that if such individuals are 
Anally very anxious to try their

xlie Federal Council gave considerable 
time to the evaluation of die xeccnt

iio fe er 13abson. An inter-r^cial banquet 
was held during which ltev. Ahan 
Knight Chalmers delivered an address 
uil the Scot.sboro Case. 

cotwnters, with plenty of pep dis- 
played awl plenty of student inter- 
est manifested, we think it would be 
little short of asinine to jeopardize 
the existence of this live and active 
leagiwe by the creation of another 
league. iSince a schedule has been 
approved by the appropriate com- 
mittee, La Vie stands behind a sin- 
gle-league system as the most prac- 
tical intramural venture, considering 
laist season's ill-fated attempt to es- 
tablish two leagues. 
The schedule of games in tlie Senate- 
sponsored interclass league appears else- 
where in this issue. There is at the mo- 
ment some question as to whether or uot 
it will stand as projected, as there seem 
to be other parties interested in using 
the gymnasium on the nights upon which 
games have been scheduled. However, 
since the schedule has already met with 
the approval of the activities commit- 
tee, we question the advisability of any 
attempt to disrupt the league set-up. 
The lirst game of the planned second 
league, a day-studeot league set up on 
pa.allel lines with the Senate league, il- 
lustrated plainly the point which this 
department has been trying to make. On- 
ly four members of the frosh outlit were 
on hand to take part, and a fifth man 
had to be delegated from the ranks of 
the dorm students, who, under the two- 
league set-up, should be eligible only for 
play in the dorm league. There were 
practically no spectators on hand for 
this game, and the players themselves 
looked upon the contest as something of 
a joke. There are no organized plans for 
this second league, no schedule even 
drawn up, much less approved. Contrast- 
in- this with the efficient way in which 
the Senate has gone about organizing 
the interclass league, and the interest 
shown by dorm and day students alike, 
we think La Vies readers will agree 
with this department that the single- 
league system is the only practical in- 
tramural plan. 

Seniors Win Two In 
Interclass Cage League 

With three games already played, the 
Interclass League seems to have resolved 
itself into a race with the Juniors and 
Seniors as the leading contestants. 

The Seniors have to date landed two 
games, while the Juniors have won one, 
neither team having suffered a defeat. 
The Seniors, with their eyes glued on 
the championship of the loop, in all prob- 
ability, will be hard pressed by the Ju- 
niors, who are equally covetous of the 
top rung and seem to be the only other 
competitors who seem capable of giving 
the men of '37 a chase. 

Last week the Seniors opened their 
bid by smothering the Frosh quintet by 
a score of 57-28. In this melee, Heisch, 
Trego, Unger, and Donmoyer were the 
leading point-collectors for the victors, 
while Artz, Geesey, Lynch, and Schaef- 
fer tallied the Greenies' points. 

On Monday night the Seniors again 
flashed invincible form to mow down 
the Sophs by an equally one-sided score, 
56-27. Donmoyer, licgo, Ileiscli, and 
Bachman paced the upper-classmen, 

while Thomas, Rutter, and Umberger led 
the Sophs.

What They Say 

Question — Do you approve of com- 
panionate marriage? 

ETHEL HOUTZ, Junior— As a 
movement, I believe it is an honest at- 
tempt to settle the sex question. I do noi 
approve of it beacuse it is too prinr'ive 
and falls barbarously below our Chris- 
tian conception of marriage. 

* * • 

WILLIAM CLARK, Sophomore— For 
the more intelligent classes, I should ap- 
prove of it; the human race being com- 
posed largely of catiffs and knaves, I 
doubt whether they could elevate them- 
selves to the height of the ethical the- 
ory upon which companionate marriage 
is based. 

* * # 

JEAN HARNISH, Senior— No. I 
wouldn't want to marry any person who 
had been thus "companionately -mar- 

* * * 

LEANDER HAMM, Sophomore— -No. 
I don't think it would work out very 
well, but I've never thought over it very 

* » * 

HARRY DEAVEN, Junior— No. Stub 
marriages are not based on true love — 

and what is life without true love ! 

* * * 

LEON CLAUSE R, Freshman— Ye to 
a certain extent. After all, marriage is 

more or less a custom, a rite. 

* • # 

GRACE NAUGLE, Senior — I sup- 
pose I'm idealistic about marriage; I 
just cannot approve of its being carried 
on in that way. 

* * * 

SARA McEWEN, Sophomore— Yes. 
Under certain condi ions, as Linds.iy 
says, it is a valuable prelude to marri- 
age. It aids individuals in deciding 

whether they are fitted for marriage. 

* * * 

SARAH LIGHT, Senior— Maybe I'm 
old-fashioned, but I do not approve of 
it, because it is a big sin according to 
the Bible. It is unmoral, too. 


(Continued from page 1) 

her interpretation was consistent 
throughout the play and her apparent 
mastery of the technical difficulties of 
the role were fully adequate to the situa- 
tion. We do not know whether she has 
any other roles up her sleeve or not, 
never having seen her in any other type, 
but until we do, we look forward to the 

Mr. Raab's somewhat dim-witted col- 
lege boy had a militant innocence about 
him that took with us immediately. 
While it is true that his delivery was 
sometimes a trifle ragged around the 
edges, it was, on the whole far superior 
to that of most of the gentlemen in the 
ca^t, who seemed all to have got a bar- 
gain rate on tonsillectomies a few hours 
before the curtain went up. He fits, we 
think, into critical pigeon hole 3-f, which 
is listed in the codebook as "shows prom- 

On the other hand, Miss Mills, the 
derriere-garde of the old order was not 
particularly impressive in pursuit of 
duty, being rather too listless to frighten 
us much, but she appeared to have the 
right idea, at least. Her error was sim- 
ply quantitative, a fault which may have 
been due to modern directing methods, 
since silent struggle with self and re- 
pressed emotion are now the fashion, as 
was extravagant melodrama only yes- 

But in evaluating the work of Vernon 
Rodgers and Helen Butterwick as 
Hodges and Mrs. Hodges, we can say 
only that they were the only two people 

in the cast whom we felt certain al- 
ways had a clear understanding of their 
parts. Le roi s'amusat. 

Lucille Hawthorne, whom we have 
picked for lesser honors was striving 
valiantly to portray a character. The 
strife, however, was a trifle too obvious. 
We accede her some points for a few 
exceptional moments, but caution her 
not to work so hard in the future. 

To Mr. Thompson, however, we 
must assume an opposite attitude, be- 
cause his considerable reputation as an 
energetic and competent delineator of 
character is inconsistent with the rather 
weak and indifferent cast of his most 
recent activities. While it is true that he 
committed no grievous errors of tech- 
nique, neither did he rise above mere 
technical proficiency. We might say al- 
so we have never heard certain correla- 
tives pronounced "ihther" and "nihther". 

Handshaking is becoming a little tire- 
some to us, however, so the gathering 
will now move into the boiling in oil 
department where we intend to immerse 
John Gongloff (Knowles), Curvin Del- 
linger (Eben), Carolyn Roberts (Elsa), 
and Barbara Sloane {Miss Agatha). 
Messrs. Gongloff and Dellinger, we 
strongly suspect, were operating under 
the influence of laudanum. Their sing- 
song delivery kept us in a state of con- 
tinual anxiety lest the soporific effect of 
the drug should suddenly take effect and 
cause one or the other of them to fall 
asleep on the stage. On second thought, 
we are not entirely certain that they 
weren't practicing somnambulism the 
whole time. When Mr. Gongloff attempt- 
ed to recite some poetry he sounded 
like a Victrola in the last stages of run- 
ning down. When Mr. Dellinger, the 
oully, attempted to get tough with 
Charlie Raab, he seemed to be only too 
painfully aware that, if the matter came 
to blows, Mr. Raab could have easily 
thrown him approximately into the mid- 
dle of the fourth row of the balcony, 
i/urthermore, we could see no necessity 
tor ignoring such elementary points as 
.vaiting for laughs. 

For some reason beyond the ken of 
jur modest faculties, Miss Sloane de- 
cided to convey that she was about 
jighty years old by walking about fold- 
ed in the middle at an angle of thirty 
degrees. We could not help wondering 
uow she kept from falling over and 
so were at least mildly surprised to see 
her assume a posture of almost recti- 
linear nature when she sat down. It 
was al o remarkable to hear an old lady 
with so unusually clear and youthful 
j. voice, but even more so to ponder the 
wherefore of the very fancy inflections 
wherewith she decorated its somewhat 
'.rregular cadences. We realize, of course, 
that the lady was trying to put over the 
idea that a couple of her more important 
cerebral departments were out of order, 
but unfortunately, she got her wires 
crossed, arsd instead threw the monkey- 
wrench into her elocution with the re- 
sult that her affliction sounded more like 
pleurisy than paranoia. The effect of 
this business was, to say the least, weird ; 
we suspect that it was a device adopted 
to hide the fact that Miss Sloane had 
only the dimmest ideas concerning the 
meaning of her lines. 

The unfortunate thing about Miss 
Roberts' acting was that there is an 
alarmingly low proportion of undertak- 
ers in the average audience, for the three 
bars of the dirge which she sang over 
and over again with different words 
would have warmed the cold, cold cock- 
les on the heart of any funeral director 
who really loved the atmosphere of his 

Despite these defects however, the 
illusion, as a whole was fairly well pre- 
served, due partly to the fact that the 
play, while built on a series of shop- 
worn sure-fire situations, was neverthe- 
less superior in construction to the vast 
number of like kind, especially in its 
highly natural presentation of very 
everyday people, who act sentimental, 

Der Herr Redacteur Baus hat uns den 
Auftrag gegeben einen deutschen Brief 
an den deutschen "Santa Claus" zu 
schreiben, und wenn der befiehlt, ge- 
horcht man. Also : Sehr geehrter Herr 
Weihnachtsmann ! 

Zuallererst wollen wir, die Studenten 
von Lebanon Valley, bekannt machen 
dass wir dieses Jahr besonders artige 
Kinder gewesen sind. Wir haben fleis- 
sig studiert und in unseren Examen aus- 
gezeichnete Noten gemacht. 

Im Allgemeinen sind wir viel besser 
als die Studenten von anderen Jahren 
und ganz besonders die "Fuechse." Den 
Professoren und den anderen Behoerden 
gegenueber sind wir nur gehorsam und 
untertaenig gewesen. Sie werden also 
leicht einsehen dass wir das Allerbeste 
von Ihnen verdienen und wenn wir das 
nicht bekommen sollten, wuerden wir 
schon gut wissen dass sie ein Boesewicht, 
ein blosser "Belsnickel" sind (Pelz-hide, 
Knicker-breaker, wie der Weihnachts- 
mann in P'nnsylvanien ueberhaupt 
heisst). Uebrigens koennen wir auf Hun- 
gerstreik gehen und keine Honigkuchen, 
Zuckerwerk noch andere Suessigkeiten 

Falls sie aber gerecht sein wollten und 
uns unseren verschiedenen Verdiensten 
gemaess belohnen, dann wuenschten wir 
Ihnen eine Froehliche Weihnachten.

dumb, afraid, or gross, or people who 
are all of these things in varying de- 
gree. We like to see ourselves as others 
see us — it's the Narcissus in us. 

Nor is there any reason to suppose 
that the success of the piece was not due 
,'n large measure to Bob Spohn's direct- 
ing, for he unquestionably demonstrated 
capability in producing the play he did 
with people who were mostly rank ama- 
teurs — some of them very rank. But, on 
the other hand, we should have pre- 
ferred him to inject a little more en- 
ergy into several of his people while 
they were putting out fires or discover- 
ing their Aunt Agatha dead in an arm- 
chair, and a great deal more vitality 
throughout the play into a few of them 
hereinbefore referred to. 

However, even if his hand was a little 
uncertain at times in directing, he 
showed excellent taste in the selection 
of Carl Conrad, formerly of Hollywood, 
to construct his settings, which were the 
most elaborate, and the most appropriate 
we have seen for some time on the local 
stage. We cannot resist saying, however, 
that the lone pillar holding up the end 
of a teaser strip in direct defiance of the 
laws of physics seemed just a trifle fu- 
tile. In this matter Charlie Raab, Roger 
Saylor, and Mr. Spohn himself must 
assume at least some share of both blame 
and praise for they were Mr. Conrad's 
assistants in the process of extorting 
Victorian furniture, building the two-in- 
one fire place, and whatever else it is 
that prop men do. 

Lena Risser's selection of costumes 
was appropriate and consistent, although 
Hodges' vest was a flamboyant atrocity 
reminiscent of nothing so much as a cer- 
tain set of curtains we invariably see in 
nightmares. We are almost on the point 
of contracting indigestion deliberately tq„ 
see whether they are still intact. 

Hal Phillips performed his usual cap- 
able job of make-up, although Aunt 
Agatha and Jennie looked to have been 
poking their noses into some adjacent 
coal-scuttle, which, however, human 
curiosity notoriously being what it is, 
they, for all we know, might have been. 

That sums up the business for the 
day. We shall have just exactly time 
enough to board a passing freight be- 
fore the hired assassins and assorted' 
howlers arrive with their artillery.

only skin-deep. Greta cooed sweet 
phrases to Ken's face, but aside she said 
what she really thought. Her loving hus- 
band did likewise, after the manner of 
"The Strange Interlude." 

Again the curtain was drawn and the 
program climaxed by a skit, "If Men 
Played Cards As Women Do." Ken East- 
land, as host, and Bdb Tschopp, Bob 
Kfll, and Ro er Siylor, as guests, gos- 
siped a great deal more than they played 
cards. Invariably they forgot the bid or 
what was trump while admir ng their 
partner's hat or clothes. \ 

An open foruin on King Edward 
and Mrs. Simpson closed the program. 
Wit predominated. It was decided that 
the king was up against a Wally.

we should be able to make quite a clean 
haul. The plan has, we think, definite 
possibilities. Of course, some poor chap 
who really needs the money, and is will- 
ing to do the work might be crowded 
out, but far be it from us to meddle in 
such mundane affairs.
